The last rappel in Mystery Canyon is quite unique...it goes down a 120ft wall right into The Narrows.

One of the most extraordinary experiences of my lifetime. Must get a permit and know how to repel. Intense hike. Will take at least 5-6 hours to complete. Wetsuit highly recommended. Views will definitely not disappoint. Very rewarding.
