The SUBW Trip Report of this canyon trip can be found here.

On this trip - we started out at the Bowens Creek Climbing Area (near Range Ck junction) - and where we had climbed out on a recent trip to the upper section of this nice canyon. I had only been down this middle section of the canyon once before - and that was many years ago - and it was much more impressive than I had remembered - with some spectacular sections of canyon and some very nice sections of gorge.
