Canyonlands: Tales from Narrow Places

Cheery-Oh El Capitan Canyon

Posted in Southern & Central Arizona by canyoneering on October 9, 2009
El Capitan Canyon, 3AI
3 miles
South of Globe, Arizona
12/14/08
Cold and clouds made for a Cheery-Oh day of canyoneering. Chris, Jessica, David and I descended El Capitan Canyon which parallels Highway 77 south of Globe last winter. For some reason, that is beyond me, David and Jessica decided to talk in British accents for the entire trip.
El Capitan Canyon has a few rappels a short section of narrows and a really cool rock tunnel that you have to walk through after the second rappel. Once the technical section is over it is an easy hike out on a dirt road back to the car.
