Traverse across the top of an eroded butte in the middle of Snow Canyon state park.
This isolated summit traverse is far more complex than a simple ramble along a ridge line, for the top of this formation is a labyrinth of slots, fins, cliffs, bowls and secret passages.
Numerous technical skills will be utilized to make our way through this convoluted sandstone maze. The skills of hiking, scrambling, rock climbing, rappelling, canyoneering, crawling and route finding will all be of use in discovering the only path through this desert wonderland.
