Chock-full of cold water.
Bear Canyon was delightfully narrow, chilly and mossy. Technically, the canyon is easy with bolts at each of the drops. Downclimbs are straighforward. Lots of tree trunks and branches throughout. Never did this canyon before, went slow, party of two hikers, took about 5 hours at a leisurely pace. The narrows are short, but very very nice. Looking forward to Sundance, Bear's more technically advanced cousin, in a few weeks.
Water is getting low, first pothole will be a struggle for some, it is getting semi-keeperish.
