Ruby/Horsethief/Westwater canyoneering ops?

Hey All,

Im planning an April trip down Ruby/Horsethief/Westwater and was wondering if anyone knows of any cool side hikes with possible canyoneering opportunies. Im thinking there must be some up Mee or Rattlesnake canyons. Maybe a couple of cool rappels? Anyone know if a simel rappel is possible off of any of the arches in rattlesnake? I couldn't find anything that said it was prohibitted in the area.

It should be a great year, happy boating!

Rattlesnake has the second most concentration of arches to Moab in the US.

You could rappel from some of the arches at the head of Rattlesnake, but please be careful, no one wants something that cool to get damaged...also, its a long hike, something like 2.5 miles and 2000' of vertical on a rough, washed out trail.
