    Further east than Devil's Garden? Wouldn't that put you in Colorado?

    I thought it looked very similar to the Robber's Roost area. Or possibly at the headwaters of the Poison Springs canyons.
    Where you are....Is not who you are.

    Sorry, I just assumed that interest in the thread was waning..

    I realize now there is more than one Devil's Garden, I assumed he meant the Escalante version.

    Poison Springs is close to the right area. This location is just a few minutes walk from the paved highway, but you'd need a little luck to find it...

    I just stumbled into this photo. No
    clue but maybe Lone Peak in Utah?

    No...and if there is anyone who I thought might get it, it was you.

    That's kind of a clue.

    Winging it, off the East side of Cummings?

    Aztec in background

    Doesn't look like the trail though.

    You're so damn close I'm going to give it to ya!

    At Powell, just across from Twilight Canyon is a small bay called Little Oak (some call it Secret Canyon)...looming behind it is Navajo Mountain, and in front of that is another, smaller "mountain"...that's it.

    On the 7.5 topo it's called "Rainbow"...2500 ft. from the lake to the top. There are two, steep routes from the lake to get out of the little canyon...moki steps up a nose on the west side and and old Navajo route up a nose on the east side. The east side route leads to Mopitz and Anasazi canyons.

    When you get to the base of Rainbow, there's only one place to go up and you'll need one good climber and a 60 ft rope for those who aren't. Then make you're way to the west and look for the only chute there is that takes you to the top.

    My first time up there was in '01. I was backpacking in the area and a friend and I decided to try to gain the summit on a layover day. We knew nothing about it but found the way up. Lo and behold, there was a can up there with paper and pen...it had about a dozen names on it, among them Steve Allen!

    I've been back up there twice since then, most recently last week. On both occasions I couldn't find that can. Either the wind got it or someone brought it down.

    The views up there, as you might imagine, are fantastic.

    Excellent guesswork, Kurt. You're a lake guy, so I figured you'd get it.

    The picture is near the top looking down into Oak Creek (the big one with the perennial stream).
    Call the cops.

    Been there, done that. First time 1985 and last time 1994. There are some great canyons in the area. We did a bunch of canyoneering in the area in the late 80's and early 90's. Fun stuff...

    Damn I'm getting old...

    I've got pictures looking up at it, I'll see if I can find them.

    Also a nice un named arch behind, on Navajo Mtn.

    Never been to either.

    Here's another pic of it about halfway up. One of these days I'm going to spend a night up there under a full moon.

I’m not sure if it even has a name but probably the Navajo would have had one for it. I’ve never seen photos of it
