Before attempting any of these adventures it is recommended that you obtain detailed information about them. Most of the mapped locations are considered hazardous and require technical canyoneering skills. I am not a good resource for beta, I'm just a map aficionado. Since it is up to the user to decide which beta suits them best, there will be no beta or links to beta provided on this map. Please ask your fellow Bogleyites for beta or check out the stickies link on Bogley's canyoneering homepage.

    Quite a few locations there! Beta and Maps are two different things. People will disagree, however. And personally, I'm okay with a map like this. People can know where the trailhead is - however, how many rappels, potholes, lengths, difficult, mae-westing, etc. is an entirely different beast (which isn't provided here).

    It will be interesting to see how the community reacts.

    I like it.
    Who? Me? Biased? Naah

    Did you try your data file as a KML?
    Doing so would let people zoom in and then click Menu ==> Label On/Off
    All the names would then appear on the map.

    Are you the same Joseph that designed Gmap4?

    If so, your software rocks.

    Would you mind giving those of us that are less savy a quick tutorial on how to get a .kml file into Google Sites then into Gmap4?

    It's great software indeed. Here's his thread, it might help to keep focus on the canyoneering waypoints in this thread:

    Looks like a very interesting map. I can't wait to spend some time looking around in it.

    Holy.......

    This thing is amazing, you put a lot of work into this and it really shows. Great job man!

    OK one more tip then we'll get back to discussing the data:

    If you select "Earth", you'll be able to view these in Google Earth mode. You'll first be required to install a teeny tiny browser plugin. If you've previously installed the plugin and you see this message, just hit continue and you'll be on your way:

    Thanks Slot Machine for getting this started... I have spent some time looking through your map, and am intrigued to see where this goes. You have put a lot of effort into this, yet there still seems to be a ways to go. There are several things mislabeled or labeled in an inconsistent manner. My intention is not to criticize, but to better understand your vision for this map. In an effort to the community providing you proper input: Who will decide and what will be the criteria for deciding if something is deemed worthy? Is your intention to mark the entry point of canyons, the trail head or mid-canyon (It appears there is some of each)?

    To show good faith, I will point out 1 thing that has been labeled incorrectly: Woodruff canyon is labeled as Swett Canyon. Swett Creek is found here:37

    hehe. Are you a canyoneer too? I thought you were mainly a hiker?


    The "Loosest" Slots in Vegas Machine: you might find this link helpful too. This was created by a great member here - @stefan. The Map is about 6 MB, but it contains a LOT of useful names with a good U.I.

    The biggest advantage to this map I have noted so far is it allows users to see which canyons are neighbors. This should help those unfamilair with an area put together a weekend combo package.

    Aptly Named Map

    Hell yeah! Thanks for creating and sharing this map, looks like an awesome resource.

    I think "Super Amazing Canyoneering Map" was the best choice for the title haha.

    On another note, boooooooo to the Admin for moving negative posts to another thread. If you truly value the free flow of information here at Bogley, then let everyone post what they like and don't remove the post (unless its blatantly harassing or inappropriate or whatever).

    Very nice! And I agree with Iceaxe that it is really nice to see how the canyon systems fit together. On a different note, I've taken to looking at Bing Maps aerial imagery as well as Google lately. I've found it to be better in the areas I have looked at (not many yet). In any case, may be worth checking as a second source of info when trying to do detailed canyon scouting/planning.

    [Note: I like the idea of collecting points on all publicly available beta'd canyons, both print and web... but I'm not too keen on the (?) and (??) guesses.]

    Here's one to add to the map

    Tent Rocks Slot Canyon 35

    We think this is a super idea, Thanks for the hard work on it. For us who are newer to the community, it really helps in just knowing where certain canyons are and makes it easier to locate them when we see some mention of them without detail as to location. We'll use it for planning purposes, I'm sure. And for those worried about the canyons being overrun by every canyon-bagger out there, maybe a resource like this will help spread out the traffic once people can more easily see in a visual way where these canyons are located and how many there are.

    Slot Machine, If/when you make improvements or additions to your map I would suggest you revised the map in the first post over posting a new map each time. You can do this simply by clicking -> Edit -> Advanced, and than locating the Manage Attachments option. That way members will not have to wade through pages of posts to find the latest updated map. When you update the map you can post something like the "map in the original post has been updated to version 2.1" or whatever, which will bump the thread and let everyone know that there is a new revision to the map.

    This is just a suggestion, we have used this approach with Bogley-fests in the past with excellent results.

    Good Idea, will do.
