North Canyon

north-canyon

This is an out and back adventure down North Canyon within Grand Canyon National Park.  From the rim and drop in point, which is reached by driving many miles off of highway 89A, on the Canyon’s north rim, it is a long and uninteresting slog to the narrows and the one and only rappel.  The common route requires fixing a rope here and ascending it later.  This is not the greatest rout in the area but does grant you access to a location usually only seen on river trips.  There is a wonderful grotto and alcove that has some incredibly unique striations and faulting in it, and is a common day hike and camp amongst river runners.  once at the river, return the way you came.
