Tatahatso Canyon and Packrafting - Canyoneering in the Grand Canyon (3BVI)

  • Oct 11, 2013 · 6:00 PM

A four-star trip in Todd's book, "Grand Canyoneering", Tatahatso is a very remote and seldom traveled technical canyoneering loop through Tatahatso Wash on the Navajo Reservation in the Grand Canyon. It is an extremely strenuous loop and involves 7 rappels down the canyon and a 6.8 mile pack raft down the Colorado River. This is a wet and cold canyon requiring wet suits with some rappels into the water.

On Friday, we'll car camp at the Eminence Break TH on the Navajo Reservation on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. On Saturday morning, we'll hike to the drop-in point of Tatahatso Canyon and spend most of the day working our way down the canyon encountering 7 rappels, the longest being 75 ft. Tatahatso Wash empties into the Colorado River where we will camp Saturday night on the beach. On Sunday, we'll inflate our pack rafts and float down the Colorado River encountering several rapids, some of which we will be required to portage along the shore. Once we reach Eminence Break, we'll defalte our pack rafts and start the brutal climb to the south rim. This is a dangerous climb on a steep route to the trailhead and our vehicles.

Tatahatso is not a beginner's canyon. It requires advanced canyoneering skills and experience pack rafting down the Colorado River. You must provide your own pack raft and rappelling gear.

I have 5 permits and the cost is $22 per person. Payment required prior to trip.

The max number of people on this trip is 5.
