I am likely to get a permit for Keyhole Canyon this Saturday. I'm a competent sport climber and boulderer but I would feel better about doing even an introductory technical canyon with someone else. I'm sure there are subtleties to canyoneering that differ from climbing! I'm confident in setting rappels from gear but have never rigged a retrievable rappel.

If anyone would like to join me for a short, fun adventure, or has advice about whether I should or should not even attempt it please let me know! I'll bring chocolate :)

Can't make it but this is a perfect first canyon. Super straight forward and quick. All rappels are bolted and no need for a retrievable rig. The water is quite cold in the potholes and worthy of a wetsuit or thick layers. Have fun NickO
