Fear Canyon

River beta for Fear Canyon

Here's a quick post about Fear Canyon of the Elaho, probably the best hard big water run in the southwest corner of BC - there is some other stuff around but it's far out in the bush and I don't think it has really been explored yet. Click the link above for info you need to go paddle there.

Fear Canyon is a great run - it's a little far off the beaten path but it's well worth the long drive up a bumpy logging road. It's hard to articulate who will enjoy this run the most - at low levels it's a good early/late season run in the class III-IV range. At high levels in the summer it will challenge and frighten anyone willing to put on - at these levels you'll find out why it's called Fear Canyon. There is something for everyone up there.

Here are some photos of a trip this fall to give you an idea of what it's all about.

The pinch. This is fierce at high water.
