Full description

Spend an exciting day traversing into deep slots and unique water sculpted canyons, rappelling and climbing along the way, and exploring miles of canyon country. The Irish Canyons are the center of canyoneering in the North Wash. With short approaches, a wide range of difficulty levels, and unsurpassed beauty, it's understandable why these are the most popular canyons in the area.

Your guide will get in touch a few days before your tour to determine the best options for your group. Then they will build an itinerary and plan your day of adventure.

On the morning of your tour, you'll meet the group in town or get picked up from your local hotel and then driven to the canyons. The tour guides will take great care to ensure your safety as you and your group explore the canyons.

To the northwest of Lake Powell lies a sea of rolling sandstone bluffs laced with some of the tightest slots in the canyoneering world. Despite the remoteness of North Wash, the canyons here are some of the most accessible anywhere with numerous world-class objectives a short distance from the highway.

North Wash is the perfect destination for beginner and advanced canyoneers alike with canyons such as Leprechaun and Blarney: second to none in beauty but mellow enough for the kids to enjoy. There are also much more advanced canyons in the area for more experienced adventurers.

These easy-to-access canyons are many canyoneer's introduction to the area. Composed of three separate canyon systems: Leprechaun, Blarney, and Shillelagh, the Irish Canyons offer something for everyone whether beginner or experienced. Because of the quick access, the Irish Canyons also make it possible to do multiple objectives in a day.
