Christopher Creek is a short 3C II Canyon 20mi. east of Payson. Very scenic right now with 4 or 5 short rappell's into cold water. Two are down waterfalls and one has a tricky overhang to negotiate. The highest is about 50 ft. It should only take 4 or 5 hours to complete but we will take our time to enjoy the water in this scenic canyon. The climb out is only 400ft. but over rugged country exposed to the western sun. Plan accordingly. Total distance 2.5 miles.
Required Personal Gear:
2 or 3 Locking Carabiners
Required Group Gear:
(2) 100ft. Ropes
(3) Quick Links
Required Personal Skills:
You must be self reliant and understand your own limitations. Must have completed at least one other canyon in running water conditions. I am not a guide. You are responsible for your own safety.
We will set up carpools and leave Lowe's no later than 8:00 AM.
