-----------------------------

Water Canyon is one of my favorites and it's practically guaranteed to please canyoneers of all levels! There is of course water in the canyon to include potential swimmers. The canyon is fairly exposed to sun and the temps are in the 100's so a wet suit probably isn't required.


It's about a two and a half hour drive one way and an 8-10 hour canyon so plan for a LONG day.

We'll meet on the third floor of the Cannery parking garage at 5 am.

Meetup Etiquette and Attendee Responsibilities:
Canyoneering is a group activity. All participants are expected to contribute in a meaningful way. This may include:

When doing a canyon:

Each rappeller should offer the next person down a fireman's belay.At difficult down/up climbs, offer to spot or assist the next person. Do not simply continue on to the next obstacle.

Safety comes first. No canyoneer should ever feel self conscious about asking for assistance.
