Difficulty Moderate to Strenuous / 1 & 2 day Charters
Bluejohn Canyon is a canyoneering adventure with routes for all abilities. Expect challenging slots, potholes, down climbing, and sheer drops where rappelling is needed.
This fun technical slot canyon in the Robbers Roost has some of the best deep narrows anywhere. To see the four forks of Bluejohn requires 3 days, but separately they can be experienced in one long day or as an overnight 4X4 camp-out. All routes contain spectacular narrows, and enjoyable desert hiking.
The main fork descends steeply into deep dark narrows. It requires 6 hours of moderate canyoneering to complete. This is the easiest one-day Blue John adventure.
The East fork of Bluejohn has the longest swirling narrows, and a little bit of water. This route can be done in one very long day with a charter flight, or as an overnight 4X4 camp-out.
The West fork and the lower narrows, known as the Gauntlet, can be combined into a long action packed day. Three 70 foot rappels and 9 hours of moderate canyoneering require an overnight 4X4 camp-out. Many guests combine this route with the High Spur on day 2. This is our most physically demanding route offered. Those who question if they are up to this challenge should first begin on a more moderate route.
