south canyon is class three at this level. it is a straight forward line down the tongue through the wave train. but it is a big rapid for beginners. it probably depends on their level of agressiveness, and your ability to rescue them when or if they swim south canyon. most of the good rapids between grizzly and south canyon are after two rivers, so it may be worth it if the beginners are up for it. it might, however, be better to do it after some time on moving water in a more tame setting, if this is their first trip out, they will be gripped in the rapids, especially south canyon. it is easy to check out from the south canyon exit, just drive across the river and park and have a look, then make the call.
