Canyonlands: Tales from Narrow Places

Cold and wet in Tango Canyon

Tango Canyon, 3BIII
5.7 miles
Tonto National Forest – Superstition Wilderness, tributary of Lower Fish Creek


Tango Canyon is a fun little adventure that requires a GPS to locate; at least we needed a GPS to find it. David and I did this canyon with John and Kim on a cold and rainy day in January. Hiking to the canyon requires fighting through evil catclaw brush and very careful route finding. The technical portion of the canyon has a few nice rappels. The last rappel of the canyon is a 70- foot drop-off into an alcove. Because of all the rain the final rappel turned into a pleasant little waterfall, splashing us as we descended. The hike out is along Fish Creek Canyon. We finished after dark.
