Tampered Anchors - Summer 2020
This canyon had almost all anchors partially removed, the reasons for the removal are still unknown as the responsible party has not yet come forward, unfortunately the quality of removal was poor, resulting in the remains of bolts sticking out of the rock. Since this event, the canyon has now been reopened.
To prevent future issues at Dungeon, please act with discretion and positively represent the canyoning community. This is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Stay in the water, avoid climbing on the banks to the side of the gorge. Can be run by competent groups in higher levels. New anchors placed in July 2023.
Approach by Car: Park in the car park between Stickle and Dungeon Ghyll Approach by foot: Follow the footpath towards Harrison Stickle. When you pass 600m of elevation keep an eye out for a path on the left that crosses the Ghyll, when you see it turn left and get in here. Canyon descent: Lots of drops with shallow pools, a great mix of anchors to test your rigging skills. Exit: Features will run out and turn more into a gorge walk. exit TL here. Escapes: Escapes are possible however usually tricky except for the middle and lower sections that have been marked on the Topo. First Decent: (Unknown)
