Merry Piglet

Where: North Wash, Utah
When: March 2009
Partners: DB, Andy Mac & Mark Beauchamp

DB, thrilled to be canyoneering on a cold, snowy day!

Merry Piglet's another fine, short canyon recently beta'd by Wyoming Dave. And in my opinion, it's the best of the North Wash mini slots.

With a touch of climbing (5.6) on the approach, some may not find the canyon trivial. But once through the initial rock difficulties, the slot displays itself as a wonderful place of joy.

But, of course, these Mini Slots must come to an end, so we all-too-soon dumped out of the tight drainage, walked a bit of open wash, and then made the final, short rappel to the boulders above the highway.
