Sunday was planned to hike Crack Canyon. We left a little after 8 and headed for Temple Mountain. We passed many camps on our way down. Last time I hiked Crack Canyon, we parked near the main road and road walked in but today I drove the Taco all the way in. There was a small camp and another car at the trailhead. We only ran into 4 other people in the canyon.
Cool Subway Section
The next section of narrows had a few obstacles to downclimb. They seemed a whole lot easier this go around.
Obstacle that stopped me last time
The next section of narrows was my favorite. They were deep and narrow but too short.
After the third section of narrows we should have turned around but we kept on going. The canyon widened and had a few sections of mini narrows. After getting to a junction we turned around and headed back.
The hike out seemed to get hotter and longer until we reached the narrows again.
Back at the truck there was a cooler with some ice cold Mountain Dew waiting for me. It was nice.
What a great hike. Enough challenge to keep the crowds at bay but not too hard to require ropes.
