2 viewsMajor obstacle at the slot canyon. Since there is deep water at the base of this 'blockage' it would require getting wet and also for us a rope to climb this vertically, and going underwater is no longer possible as the other side is now clogged with a strainer of debris. Most visitors here never enter the bowels of the slot but simply go around it. Our intentions was to go up the gut all the way so we would go around the right side of this 'blockage' and then descend back down into it

2 viewsWe spent a lot of time exploring this lower end of the slot canyon before going around this large blockage to get to its other side in the main and much deeper part of the slot
