Echo-north Slot Canyon
ACA Canyon Rating – 2A I
NEVER ENTER ANY SLOT CANYON WHEN HEAVY RAIN IS IN THE FORECAST…!!!
We refer this this un-named canyon as echo-north canyon because it is in the drainage of the first major canyon north of Echo Amphitheater
This canyon has a very fine stretch of “slot canyon” and it is a hike/scramble that can be done without ropes…!!!
The scramble up the slopping waterfall shown in this photo is difficult… you might bring along a couple toilet plungers for a cheating ascent
