Bailey Canyon 3A III For Beginners

  • Feb 2, 2014 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

New to Canyoneering? Haven’t really explored the local canyons? Come explore one of Southern Californias classics, Bailey. It’s got a little of everything including a nice hike with great views, narrow sections, a 110ft sloped rappel, a small cave and a few free-hangs.

Time: 6-7 hours
Estimated hiking distance: 3 miles
Elevation gain: 1280 feet
Difficulties: About 12 rappels ranging in height from 25ft to 110ft, several with free rappel due to overhang.
ACA Rating: 3A III

More information on this canyon can be found here:

Required personal gear:
3 Locking D shaped carabiners
Descending device (Totem, ATS, ATC, Figure 8, Piranha)
Personal anchor (can be a shoulder length sling)

Gloves for rappelling. (Any leather gloves will work. If you don't have leather gloves, bring what you have.)

Required group gear:
1 rope @ 200’
1 rope @ 120’
50’ of 1” tubular webbing
5 rapide links

If you have a rope, webbing and/or rapides bring them. Otherwise I will cover group gear.

I am not a canyon guide and will not be guiding the canyon. I am a canyoneer with a passion for the sport and want to share this with others by organizing and leading trips. You will be required to set up anchors and rigging and are responsible for your safety at all times. I will be there to facilitate, give you tips and provide feedback to help you become a more competent, self reliant canyoneer.


In order to participate in this event you must be signed up through Timebank, a system set-up to exchange services. It uses hours as currency. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn an hour. This hour can then be redeemed for services from others, and the never-ending cycle of sharing continues.

Join the CISN TimeBank, once your membership is approved, go to "Give and Receive" > "Record an Exchange" and give 2 hours (TimeBank Credits) to user “360nomad” for "Canyoneering" > "Events". Doesn't matter if you don't have hours in your account yet. You can use the 2 hours on credit and then earn hours in the future by serving your community. Service could be canyoneering related -- organizing practice sessions, leading trips, etc. -- or it could be volunteering for a local food bank, youth group, senior citizen center, etc. You can also earn hours providing services such as computer programming, carpentry, plumbing, child care, etc. to other TimeBank members.

    I came early for a run but gates are locked. Good thing we weren't starting at any earlier. But good thing is, after some phone calls, they're on there way to open gate.

    I sprained my ankle yesterday so I am going to have to cancel. Sorry this is so last minute, I thought it would feel better this morning.

    I've added "gloves" to the required personal gear list. bring whatever you have. Leather works the best but any gloves will work if you don't have "leather" or "rappelling" gloves.

    Also I haven't heard from:

    David Chorak

    Are you guys still planning on coming?

    Hi Alden - I'm trying to give you credits, but CISN Timebank keeps saying "Alden Anderson is not a known user"

    Any suggestions?

      Styllista, Rich actually has to approve it. Which I'm sure he'll do as soon as he has connection.

    Terry i got your credit, thank you!

    Trevor, you are approved now on timebank.

    Still waiting on:

    Rich is in Nepal right now so it might take a few days to get approved once you sign up. Sooner the better. Looking forward to Sunday!
