Awesome rappel! Even though I landed right on top of the dead cow. The canyon is short and sweet! Fun if you are in the area. We finished our day of 4 canyons with this one. The weather was perfect at 60+ degrees.
The beta on Climb-Utah was not the greatest with this canyon. The GPS waypoint led me about 200 feet away from where I needed to be, so we just found a good tree and rapped from there.
All in all, had a great time on this rappel! The noob that was with me said it was his funnest one all day! the cow wasn't even stinky!
Repeat, Jr still has a dead cow in it. Things have began chewing on it but it hasn't gone anywhere. It smells hideous. Do be aware this is down there if you want to rap down.....it wouldn't be a pleasant experience. Rest of the canyon dry and easy. We hiked in from the bottom. Also, the 4WD road mentioned on www.climb-utah.com has been closed off for reseeding, so we just parked on the road and everything was fine.
9 ft long dead cow at bottom of rappel. Solid now, liquification coming soon. Suggest this canyon be avoided by the squeamish.
Road was fine up to the 4wd road marked on Shane's map. Instead of using the 4wd road from the beta (which isn't drivable), continue South to the first pullout on the left, and hike from there. There is an emerging trail there. Canyon was dry, and very short.
However, I'd recommend skipping this canyon for two reasons. 1) It's not very good; worse than Winter Camp Slot (which is the same type of canyon - one rappel with a hike; but this one is shorter with a more convoluted exit) and 2) there was a cow trapped in the canyon which we tried to help get out for three days, but even with the owner/rancher's help we were unable to do so. So, the aroma will not be pleasant in there for quite some time.
