Slab Canyon... the name nails it: steeply tilted bedrock walkway, concluding in large DryFall formation up in the Cactus Cliffs...

...then, a descent down through the tiny Ridge Canyon... to access Spur Canyon for more Bedrock back up to a great grotto feature... lots of looping!

This is a strenuous workout... lots of steep mileage... off Trail... Class I Canyoneering... bring gloves and energy!

9 miles... 4,000' AEG... Off Trail!
[masked] call if you are running late!

7+ Hours...?

We have dedicated the Third Saturday each month for the next six months for a series of Alamogordo Canyon hikes to both enjoy the Cuts... and to allow folks to work their way up to a level where they can enjoy the more demanding hikes, culminating in the final Adventure: Marble Canyon South.

Class I and Class II Canyoneering... Off Trail... Not for Beginners (...unless they do the entire series start to finish?!!

We tend to start on time... call if you are running late!
