Sundance is a 3BIIR Canyon in West Clear Creek, with some semi-keeper and keeper potholes ending with a 180 ft rappel, much of which is free hanging. This is a more advanced Canyon and not for beginners. This canyon has some deep water and may be very cold. That being said, it is a 5 Star Canyon not to be missed and the last rap is unforgettable. The trip will take 2 to 5 hours. The exit requires a 750 ft climb out.
We may do Bear Canyon immediately after we do Sundance on Sunday May 5. So doing bear would be an option for anybody who does this trip.
