This is a volcanic slot canyon in the desert south of Morenci. Narrow and deep, the canyon stays remains much cooler than the surroundings, and offers a pleasant destination from Safford for those looking for a little local crag. The rock is a nearly glass smooth at the bottom, but is quite porous and fractured higher up.

About a dozen short routes exist ranging 5.9-5.12

Getting There 

Park on the side of 191 near the top of a hill where you'll find a break in the fence. Hike down a thin path to a drainage which you follow to the floor of the canyon and head left.

Any idea why some of the hangers are missing off of the bolts, but the nuts are still loosely on the bolts? I will more than gladly purchase some hangers and put them back on the routes, I'm just curious if they were taken off for a reason
