Beautiful semi-technical canyon, very popular among hikers from the rim and from the river. Lets all do our part to keep Boy Scout quiet and clean! Don't let this treasure become a trash/feces heap like Goldstrike and Arizona Hot Spring. Follow all 7 Leave No Trace principles, and consider leaving no digital trace as well.
- Please remember that installation of permanent fixed hardware is strictly prohibited in Black Canyon Wilderness Area, and the entirety of LMNRA. No bolts, motorized use beyond the Wilderness Boundary, or power tools.
15' fixed rope followed immediately by 340' rappel. Rappel is on wall for majority of drop, except for the last 100' or so. There are three chain anchors placed along the drop which could be used as rebelays. The first is at about -100' and the second around -200'. The last 15' of drop can be downclimbed if the rope comes up short. Several fixed ropes to hot springs. One fixed rope to river.
