CHAMBERS CANYON. ROBBERS ROOST, UTAH

Chambers Canyon. Robbers Roost, Utah
Chambers is located in robbers Roost which is situated right near the Dirty devil river in Utah. apparently this is a classic canyon with super tight squeezes and chamber like rooms which offers 3 to 4 hours of no rope access shimmy climb downs.

being a caver, I have seen my fair share of tight squeezes so I was not really getting excited about this one but it was right across from where I was when I was knocking out fallen angel, Lost Angel, and Angel cove, so I swam across the Dirty devil river and hiked up to the crack in the floor for chambers.

Chambers was quite tight and required a lot of shimmeying with all different kinds of techniques that needed to be deployed so I rate this one at a 3BIIR with the restrictive squeeze slots. They would open up into small rooms with the sun just barely peaking through and some others barely any sun at all.

I kept working my way through and eventually, I just popped out the sandstone wall like a bug and I was at the bottom of the canyon.   It was kind of weird actually but I can see why people like this one as it did has its unique esthetic but it wasn't my cup of whiskey. I think chambers is an acquired taste.
