Second descent. New canyoneering route near Las Vegas proven worth the hike

The mountaineering and climbing world is pretty hung up on the idea of first ascents. Canyoneers, however, are more concerned with setting precedents in the opposite direction.

A couple of weeks ago, a crew from the Las Vegas Mountaineers Club tracked down a new canyoneering route not far south of the strip. Their exploration proved successful. So a few of us, including one of the initial descenders, went back recently to give it another go. We were rewarded with a full day of limestone shin scrapes, dodgy downclimbs into dry tubs and tanks and of course, a number of riveting rappels.

That folks, is how to spend a winter day in the desert.
