I've lived in the valley over 30 years. My passion is Boulder climbing and creating ladder routes through Mecca's slot canyons. Hate sand slogging! I'll show you crazy cool places!

LADDERS AND SLOTS IN PAINTED CANYON – HIKE IS FULL

***Please consider joining us another time. ***

Join Mark for a loop hike through the “Lost and Found” and “Surprise” slot canyons. This is a very pretty hike with a ridge walk between the two slots and nice views of the Salton Sea.  There are several ladders and narrow slots with some height.  This route will take about 3 1/2 hours, once the group starts going.   Hikers will need gloves and long pants.   

This route is harder than the standard Painted Canyon hike. IF YOU HAVE A FEAR OF HEIGHTS OR ARE CLAUSTROPHIC, THIS IN NOT THE HIKE FOR YOU.

The group will meet at Just Java on Washington and Hovely, Bermuda Dunes, at 9 AM.

IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING, CALL MARK (760-898-2907) TO BE VETTED.
