TRIP OVERVIEW

The Cedar Mesa classic canyoneering experience.  Two picturesque slot canyons in one day.  You'll swim, down-climb and scramble over and under boulders.  We'll then rappel 60' into a pool of water and come out of the slot to view an ancient Anasazi cliff dwelling.  This is a full day trip lasting 6-8 hours based on group size and skill.

ITINERARY

Meet at the Four Corners Adventures shop in Blanding, Utah at 8:15 am to meet your guides, fill water bottles and get fitted for helmet.  After ensuring everyone has the proper footwear and gear we’ll load up the van and hit the road.  It’s a 45 minute drive out Highway 95 through beautiful scenery including Comb Ridge and Salvation Point.  Once arriving at Fry Canyon we’ll load up our packs and start our hike.  The entrance to our first slot canyon is less than 5 minutes hike and we’re quickly rewarded with twisting red rock walls.  Depending on weather this will be full of water and one short swim is required.  We can pack flotation for those that need it.  After taking photos and enjoying this first slot we’ll scramble over and under boulders in the canyon hiking for ~1 mile to the next deep slot canyon.

 

Here we’ll harness up and enjoy lunch in the sun while we set up the ropes for the 60’ rappel.  Once we’re set we’ll give a demonstration on rappelling and take the time needed to teach everyone the techniques of rappelling.  This is a great first time rappel and puts you right into a beautiful cavern full of water.  Another swim is required here and after the swim we can get right back in the sun or on hot days stay and swim a bit.  Coming out of the slot we’ll get a great view of an ancient puebloan cliff dwelling.  Our swimming hole was their drinking source 1000 years ago!

 

Now we’ve got to hike up and out of this canyon and we’ll enjoy beautiful views of white canyon.  This is a steep climb out, but we’ll take our time and most fitness levels do just fine.  Once on top we’ll hike back along the rim of Fry Canyon back to the van for a cold drink and head back to Blanding.
