Rock Garden

Birdfoot Canyon — There’s no name for this place (mile 74) on any map except for an oddly-shaped geologic formation called Birdfoot Dike. The rivercamp on the beach below the mouth is called Rattlesnake. A trail popular with raft groups goes from the beach to The Tabernacle along the ridgeline.

Routes — Rattlesnake to The Tabernacle; over 1,600 feet up. This is one option to connect Unkar Delta with Asbestos Canyon. For the other option see GCLH-II.

1998 May - Day 5 from upper Asbestos to Unkar. Tamarisk and narrow ledges upriver from Rattlesnake. And one 30 foot climb where a ledge goes under.
