The Desert Jim
Rating: intermediate to advanced
"The Desert Jim" is an outdoor gym and refers to a multisport adventurer we know - Jim Holmes. This is a good adventure, we've done it a couple of times. The paddle is long but beautiful and the canyon is a real surprise, shown as only 3 miles, the climbing Class 4 or 5 (subjectively it is 5...or 4) will make the 3 miles seem longer!
