So I'm planning on meeting up with family in Red Rock to do some canyoneering on Saturday the 8th of October. But I'm having a hard time finding very much information. I found bluugnome and its got some information, but I was wondering if anybody knew of another decent canyoneering website for the conservation area, because I am not having much luck.

Any leads on more information would be greatly appreciated.

Give the boys at Desert Rock a call- i believe there's a guidebook for the region available.

The only canyoneering i know of in Red Rock is the Maze above Icebox Canyon (which may be a bit chilly that time of year- bring a wetsuit for sure).

The more popular canyoneering stuff I know if is up north in Southern Utah.

Thanks I will give them a call. I wish we were going to zion I know a ton of the canyons there quite well, but Red Rock was the compromise between northern Utah, and southern California.

The online canyoneering info for RR is scattered around various sites, including what you found on bluugnome. Ropewiki has quite a few.

e.g.
ropewiki.com/Red_Rock_Canyon
canyoneeringusa.com/rave/hi…
dankat.com/swhikes/icecub.htm
summitpost.org/lost-creek-c…

I just noticed the (new?) guide that John mentioned at Desert Rat in St George; maybe Desert Rock has it as well.

Call the local REI, they should have Rick's guidebook in stock... Or order on Amazon here: amazon.com/Las-Vegas-Slots-…

Hidden Falls is a great, easy, half-day outing for the less-experienced.
