Middle Route to Buckskin Gulch

Middle Route to Buckskin Gulch Professional Review and Guide

"The Middle Route offers a short, no-nonsense approach to the lower reaches of Buckskin Gulch. For backpackers hiking through Paria Canyon to Lees Ferry, or out to White House Trailhead, this route shaves about one hiking day off the trip. As with any other slot canyon hike, don’t consider this trip if rain is even a remote possibility. Once you reach Buckskin Gulch, there is no safe high ground for many miles.
Experienced canyoneers will find the route simple and straightforward down to the rim of Buckskin Gulch.

From there the route plunges down a sandy slickrock crack, where one misstep could be your last. A healthy respect for steep drop-offs and experience descending very steep slickrock with a backpack are necessary to negotiate the descent route safely."
