Launch Dates – While we don’t run this section ourselves we work with several of the best companies in the area and are happy to discuss the trip, the outfitters and your options. A relatively short, narrow, extremely scenic canyon which the Colorado River has gouged and polished through an ancient uplift of black Precambrian schist. Soaring red sandstone cliffs cap the jet black schist, providing a striking contrast. Twelve sharp, technical rapids with names like Funnel Falls, Bowling Alley, Surprise and the infamous Skull, are encountered during this seventeen-mile trip.
