Upper Salome Canyon (Grotto Pool) - Technical Canyoneering

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is an extremely streneous, ~17 mile technical loop with lots of boulder hopping (slippery rocks), tricky downcliming, a handful of rappels and swimmers down Park Canyon, into Upper Salome Canyon, thru the famous narrows known as Grotto Pool, and exiting up via either a 6 mile regular trail (lots of elevation gain) or via a side canyon (more fun, but physically challenging). 

We will either camp in the Grotto (no camp fires) or by Hell's Hole (campfires probably ok).

Miles: ~17 (+/-)

ACA Rating: 3BV

Elevation gain:  ~3,000ft

Days planned in the Canyon: 1.5-2

I am only facilitating this trip, and I am in no way liable for your safety.  You are  expected to be responsible for yourself.  I am limiting this thip to 6-7 max!!!

Gear needed:  personal technical canyoneering gear including wetsuit and pas, overnight camping gear (waterproofed), and great phyisical shape.  This is an extremely challenging trip where pain will be compensated with natural beauty:)

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
