The day after Nick, langutah, neiloro and I scraped through the mesmerizing depths of Larry Canyon, we set our sights on one of Larry's neighbors: the north fork of Lost Spring Canyon, a lesser traveled and more mysterious slot in Robbers Roost. What we hoped would be the perfect "Sunday canyon" in the Roost surprised us with numerous physical challenges and a dark, cryptic beauty. We were still car to car in less than 3 hours, but the challenges within those gothic chambers made time feel like it moved at a much slower pace. Several short rappels (one of which was from an old piton) and a plethora of physical, shirt-shredding down climbs and high stemming action kept the blood pumping. Lost Spring Canyon packs a lot of meat onto a small bone.
