Has anybody been here or know more about this location out in Western Utah? I've read about it in Kelsey's book and have downloaded a topographic map or two about it. What it is is a limestone slot canyon, which sounds amazingly different from the typical sandstone or even conglomerate.
I am scouring the web to find information about that slot. This is all I have found so far:

Yeah I looked at Canyon Collective and could only find one link and it just mentioned the canyon. No beta, no photos.
I have downloaded that topographic map already and after cruising through 4 pages of google searches and getting nothing useful after the first two except those links above I figured I would ask here.

It's amazing what different device search histories will do. I re-searched this canyon on another device and found information about the trailhead (from Canyon Collective no less, not sure why it wasn't showing up in the first search). Hope to visit some time this year.
