A nice couple hour canyon romp with some fun downclimbing problems

Initial rappel

Dwight rappels into Arscenic, a fun slot canyon in the Posion Springs area near Hanksville, Utah.

Second rappel

Dominic prepares to rap down a big dryfall immediately following the initial rappel.

Sculpted beauty

Fourth rappel

Dominic finishes up the initial series of four rappels near the beginning of the canyon. Time to put away the rope and enjoy some downclimbing.

Tight narrows

Dominic enjoys some tight narrows.

Downclimbing problem

Kevin begins one of the first significant downclimbing problems, a 20 foot chimney. A handline provides some encouragement.
