I have only seen the lower portion of Slickhorn 6 (called Trail Canyon), but I can recommend this as an out and back hike. We camped at the confluence with Slickhorn's main channel and we hiked a mile up #6 to the ledge ruins. These ruins have over 20 rooms - some built with just sticks, some with mud over tied up sticks (waddle and daub), some with bricks, some with log roofs, some are barely remaining. They obviously were built over a long span of time. You can walk (crawl) the entire ledge, but be careful as the drop is huge - if you are afraid of heights, you'll probably forgo the end rooms, but they are some of the best. This eTrail covers this specific out-and-back route well.
