Canyoneering

Bear Creek is an Ouray classic canyoneering route. The canyon is beautiful but technical as the creek carves a deep narrow gorge. You must be commited and experienced once you enter the canyon. There is exposed downclimbing and a lot of swimming. During heavy snowpack years, the water levels may never be safe. There are 6 rappels with the tallest being 100 ft. Bring rappelling and anchor gear, 70 ft. of webbing, 6 quicklinks, a wetsuit, and a life jacket for weak swimmers.
