Keyhole Canyon 03/2014

After a little warm up on a rope we headed to the top of Keyhole canyon for a great first rappel.

It was a cool morning but warmed up quickly especially as we did a few warmup rappels.

After getting the feel of the rope we changed to the rope we will use in the canyon.

Now a little work on the uneven and changing surfaces or a canyon wall and we are ready for a hike.

After a short hike (without the long detours) we arrived at our first rappel.

A nice way to enter the canyon... on a rope.

Its not as far as it looks…

It’s farther…

This rappel is often skipped and replaced with a short hike around the back side. But we were ready to get this rope ride started.
