There is absolutely no point in posting an area in a forum like this that you refuse to give details about and don't want to share with others. Keeping such a find to yourself is fine, adding it to this forum is at the very least rude and possibly even deserving of worse adjectives.

Dark Canyon isn't really a secret, is it?

Yes BJ, it is Dark Canyon and yes, Jesse you are spot-on—it should either be all-out or taken off. And yes, one of Moab's finest, but i sincerely doubt it is in peril of being pathed. And I say that as one of the early explorers of the area. And if the two who really brought it to fruition hadn't shared their find with the rest of us, one has to wonder—would any/all the above photographed and commenting even know of it? Sharing is o.k. That is what brought all of us there.
