Info: We were trying to do mystery canyon but ended up going down the wrong trail. Would definately NOT recommend this hike!!! We ran out of water and had to do some insane rappels to even make it out. Ended up getting picked up by a ranger because all the shuttles we're gone.

3: Looked like a trail
N 37º 16.9656   W 112º 56.0762
Distance: 0.5 miles

Notes: We accidently turned right. Path is worn and we repelled off a tree which was the point of no return. Looked like we atleast weren't the first to do this. Saw webbing, footprints, etc.

4: Out of the Canyon
N 37º 17.4839   W 112º 56.5114
Distance: 0.7 miles

5: Soo Close
N 37º 17.3201   W 112º 56.5809
Distance: 0.2 miles

Notes: Well great view. We could see all of the narrows hikers. Had to turn around from here.

6: Water Fall View
N 37º 17.6703   W 112º 56.6659
Distance: 0.4 miles

Notes: See the tiny water fall straight down? Thats where we should be. We almost stayed the night but ended up going back to the right and rappelling off of any tree we could find. Lucked out that there wasn't any rappels over 200 feet.

7: Back on Track
N 37º 17.9407   W 112º 56.5989
Distance: 0.3 miles

Notes: Very Steep Trees. This is the stretch of the video included.

8: Following River
N 37º 17.8035   W 112º 56.8976
Distance: 0.3 miles

Notes: Continued to follow the river... at dark.. holding hands.. like a man.

9: Midnight Narrows
N 37º 17.1029   W 112º 56.8873
Distance: 0.8 miles

Notes: Yes held a grown mans hand... actually two. So dark we couldn't see walking through the narrows river. Guess who didn't bring flash lights?

10: Ranger Pickup
N 37º 15.9780   W 112º 56.6916
Distance: 1.3 miles

Notes: We thought we were pretty 'bad ass' until we saw flash lights from people rock climbing angels landing. They were passing a light back and forth staying up all night im guessing. They heard us and shouted something inaudible at us. A ranger luckily picked us up, thanks to my buddy Cache for calling the rangers!
