Little Death Hollow is absolutely fun! The slot Canyon (3 feet wide width apart on either side) goes on for several miles. The trip back up the Wolverine Canyon is breathtaking too. You trade the soft curves of slot style canyons for Swiss cheese pock marks along the Canyon walls. While not qualifying as a slot, the pass weaves in and out of 5 foot to 30 feet widths. So you still get the maze feel of the slots. The actual hiking is moderate, probably due to the minimal elevations change and mostly gradually down hill, but the minimal water sources and distances to get back to your car makes it a ‘hard’ rating. I don’t see how people can go into Little Death hollow and back, as I think it’d prove difficult to climb over some of the obstacles, like a boulder in the slot or a mud puddle blocked by debris. Going down is fine, just not up. Some go above the slot, but then to me, what’s the point! if you’re not in the slot.
