Brimstone Gulch

•Brimstone Gulch could be considered the ultimate slot canyon. Much of Brimstone is narrow with many spots that are less than a meter wide along its one-mile length. The bottom is fairly dim with curving walls that block out sunlight. To reach the mouth of Brimstone you need to down-climb over a large chokestone, which may be difficult for some people. The mouth of Brimstone is wide; you have to hike into it for about a half mile before it becomes a slot. As you hike up Brimstone it eventually becomes so narrow it is impassable. There are deep pot holes and high pour offs along the route. Don't attempt this one until you have some canyoneering experience.
