We are heading down to Cedar Mesa in a couple of weeks, to explore some places we haven't seen. We are heading down Slickhorn Road past Government Trail to the end of the road, @ far right center in the image. This is Water Canyon and it's side canyons, Grand Gulch at the far left. I have been up Water years ago from Grand Gulch, and I remember not being able to go very far. Has anyone accessed these side canyons from the mesa? Any info would be appreciated.

Only get down one of the forks....easier to go up. At the last upper pouroff is a old tree to climb on or was..... You can also contour the ledges in the south side... I'll have to look for which fork to make sure but I think it's the second from the top ( north)

I am not psyched about climbing down a tree. We will bring a short rope just in case.
