Watch out, some of them are pretty loose!


Red Canyon is the canyon in between Ute & No Thoroughfare. When you are at Cold Shivers Parking lot, you are looking into the South Drainage of Red Canyon.

Getting There 

For the longest time, folks were walking up the drainage from South Camp Rd, but it now appears that there are some access issues with walking the drainages. Top down now seems to be the way. Plan on jugging unless you pick your line very carefully.
