Activity: Canyoneering Medieval Chamber - one of the best beginner-friendly canyoneering adventures in the Moab area. Good bolted anchors, relatively short, with two impressive rappels. 1/2 day trip. Although not very long, it is renowned for its last rappel. The last rappel, Morning Glory Arch, is very popular with tourists, so expect a crowd awaiting your dramatic entrance from above. 45 min hike across flat desert with some scrambling and stemming. One option for a 20 ft downclimb with a handline attached to a small shrub. First rappel marked by east facing triple fin formation. First rappel 110 ft with bolts and chains. Rt bolt drops rappeller straight down, left bolts drop rappeller into a pool 3/4 the way down. About 300 yd walk to top of second rappell. About 115 ft with bolts on the far left. Rappel is behind the arch. 2 1/4 mi hike out mostly flat with several stream crossings which can be confusing. Road Trip Ryan Trip Report
