I'm looking for information about the Cloudburst Canyon SW of South Hawkins. Has anyone been there? Got any beta on obstacles? Thanks in advance.

I've only hiked around the bottom. Doesn't look technical on Google Earth. Looks like a stretch of bushwhacking a short distance up after a tributary meets it, but not much after. Probably awful bushwhacking in real life, if experience shows anything. Smile

Never been....Smith Mountain provides for a good look at it.

I doubt there is a rappel in there. Fierce brush between elev 3800-4200 and 4300-4600? Probably the whole route LOL. I have a photo from 2007 that looks like a lot of tree deadfall in there too from the Curve fire.  Ive seen water from there walking along Hwy39 more than once(Alpine canyon as well).

Lost canyon ain't sheeyit compared to the stuff around Schwaterfall. :-/ Misery.

Gonna go give it a shot? Please be careful with your steep scary climb deals as always.
