Should be used only as a last resort when the safety of the party is at risk, or in special cases of high use areas to minimize other damage that may occur to the canyon. Bolts, once placed, permanently alter the canyon and reduce the wilderness character canyoneers are seeking. There are several myths regarding artificial anchors that are worth dispelling. First, that artificial anchors are inherently safer than natural anchors. This is sim­ ply not the case, particularly in canyons carved from sandstone.

Special Considerations: Additional details or challenges that may be unique to the canyon or pertinent to the trip are discussed in this section. Note: ACA Rating: The American Canyoneering Assodation rating system assigns a score to a canyon that provides an indication as to its difficulty, much like the Yosem­ ite Dectmal System used by climbers. The rating system consists of four parts: Terrain/Technical Rope Work: 1, 2, 3, 4 Water Volume/Current: A, B, C Risk/Seriousness (optional) : R, X Time/Commitment: I, II, III, IV, V, VI The rating system is explained in more detail in Appendix B.

Keep your group small, a group of 3-6 canyoneers is optimal. If a smaller, faster group catches up, allow them to play through. You get bonus points for consideration if they catch you at a rappel and you allow them to use your rope. Unless passing or being passed, try to maintain separation be­ tween yourself and other groups. • If the canyon is popular, schedule your trip at a time when you are likely to avoid other groups. • Keep in mind that other canyoneers are probably looking for the same natural experience that you are; treat them the way you would like to be treated.
