Name: EXPLORER scrambling along big rocks west side of Ash Canyon

Small group, and everyone starts on the wait list. Please read the entire description and answer the question. No more than 8 total.

Total distance: 3.5 miles probably, though I don't really know
Pace: 3 or so of 5

Total time to complete: 4.5 hours maybe more... don't sign up if you absolutely have to be back on time.

Elevation Change: 1500 feet vertical, but up/down, up/down...

Difficulty: 3 to 4 of 5

Scrambling: ALL of it

EXPOSURE: Yes, some narrow ledges along very big drops off a cliff. Approach shoes and backpack that stays in place are required equipment.


How easy to follow? Not at all.

Dogs/kids: NO


Bathrooms: None (except bushes)
Donations: In no sense required, but always appreciated

Bring water and a snack/light lunch. I hope it's not too hot, because it's in the sun nearly all the time.


I had a short scramble recently in this area with a friend and there are a lot of places to explore. Part of it is a route, but what route and whose I don't know.

The plan is to get up on the big rocks where I left off the last time and see where it goes. If it gets too hot, we may stop early, because there is not much for shade in this area in the morning. Please be prepared for that.

It will be a small group, and only people whom I know are capable are going to be approved to go. It can't be your first Intermediate event, no good at all for anyone afraid of heights or exposure. There's one shelf that is a very big drop and the walk is across a narrow ledge for quite a distance.
