Route as I described in the route write up, Fish and Owl Canyons Loop is an amazing canyon route that will take you down some epic slab, through some challenging bushwhacking, past deep pour-offs, below the impressive Neville’s Arch, and right along some ancient canyon dwellings. It is a far “beyond ordinary” day out! Well worth your effort.

The Bushwhacking was gnarly through Fish Canyon, I will admit that someone in the past who caught this less overgrown may be able to evidence a better time. Please tell them too. I almost wanted to give up between the bushwhacking and deep sand sections. But then at the confluence it became fun again, and i found a rhythm.

Excited to see how fast someon will rip this time up!
