Our second canyoneering outing! To start this canyon, we had to (got to) hike to the ridge from the highway which took about three hours. This was the second descent of Brimstone Canyon and we were with the guy who did the first descent. His first descent took fifteen hours and it took us eleven hours this day because almost all the anchors were already in place.
The scariest and most time consuming part was this traverse across snow and loose gravel to the ridge. One slip could send you down who knows how far.
Brimstone Canyon is at the south end of an area called Artist Palette. It's named for the array of colors spread out across the mountain.
Equalizing the rope...fixing it to where each half of the rope is equal and on the ground. You can only do this when you can see the rope on the ground.
We walked out of the canyon towards the Devils Golf Course around sunset. It was another amazing day! So much fun!!!
