day hike canyoneering subway canyon - June 20, 2022

I have a few spots available to canyoneer the North Fork, better known as Subway, Canyon with my group. You must have rappelling experience and your own harness, carabiner, descending device and day pack, with lunch and snacks and especially, sufficient water. It is not safe to filter in this canyon anymore, because of the Cyanatoxin that can be found in this water. You are responsible to look into the possible consequences of coming in contact with it and don't sign up if you aren't willing to take full responsibility for your own safety and we'll being. I am volunteering to lead, but am not a guide. As you know, there are inherent risks to this sport. You will be required to sign a liability waiver before joining us on the hike. This is a 2-3 day trip, including travel days and just one day in the canyon. It's a fairly strenuous 9.5 miles, with lots of scrambling, swim throughs in narrow slot canyon areas and also walking in water much of the time. There are 2-3, 15-25 ft rappels. Wet suits are optional and should be considered, if you run cold. Red rock approach and river rocks are often slippery, so grippy, close-toed hiking water shoes are recommended. It's an all day hike and because of the early start time, you must be available to be in the St. George or surrounding area, by evening of June 20, the night before. Most will sleep overnight in the St. George area on hike day, June 21st as well, after a long day on the trail. You are responsible for your own lodging and meals. That all said, It's a fun and memorable adventure!
