Fall Creek

fall creek

Fall Creek is quite the pleasant route down, you guessed it, a canyon with flowing water and waterfalls to rappel as it crashes its way towards its confluence with the much larger Big Tujunga Canyon.  For what it lacks in length and epicness, it makes up for its ease of access and a generally easy route which is suited for less experienced canyoneers.  The traditional route is a fairly short endeavor with a handful of downclimbs and rappels, with the final Fall Creek Falls being the icing on the cake as it drops down a beautiful chute and wall.  This rappel is 75 feet and the biggest of the canyon.  From here, the confluence with Mill Creek/ Big Tujunga is a hop and ski away.  There is a variation on this route that drops in a little bit higher than the traditional drop in point which adds a few nice rappels and waterfalls, this route is quite common and is almost becoming the normal route.
