Trip Description

Weehawken Creek is Canyoning Colorado’s most technically challenging canyon; the approach is a 1400ft climb to the Weehawken Mine, which is followed by a mutli-pitch descent into the canyon with approximately 200ft of rappelling. Once in, the group has the opportunity to walk upstream to check out a snow cave before continuing on with your descent.

The descent is probably the wettest of all our tours because you’ll be in the flow in almost every rappel! Don’t underestimate the power of the water here; impeccable rappelling technique is an absolutely must.

The end of your tour greets you with a pleasant surprise; a short 5 minute hike back to our van. At the end of long and committed canyon, seeing the vehicle that transports you back to reality is a welcoming sight!
