Christmas Punchbowl (Technical Canyon)

There's a Christmas present under a Choke Stone gift wrapped with 1 inch of tubular webbing that leads into 12+ rappels eventually dropping into a beautiful Punch Bowl, who's interested?!

While others are opening up their presents and stockings, we'll be putting on 3mm of neoprene and descending a very wet and cold canyon, the top canyon in the Superstition Mountains.  Must have advanced technical canyoneering skills and willing to scramble up some areas with Class 3 exposure.  I will only be taking 5 others as it will be a long, cold day.  We should be back to the cars by 5pm.

By approval only, please sign up on wait list.

    Id go but consider myself a beginner/ novice :( few raps, good with knots, blocks and experienced hiker. But not many full canyons. 2/3 b/c ratings.

      Sorry Jason, Punchbowl is not a beginner canyon maybe the next time if you can get a canyon or 2 in.

    I can't make it but have done Puchbowl - it is tops for canyoneering.

    I recommend at least a 3/2 wetsuit. It will be wet. It will be cold.

    Definitely the best canyon in Superstitions by a long shot.

    I'd love to do this, but not on Christmas morning...
