Leaving the granary the group continued up the canyon past fading petroglyphs on the cliff walls to 2 shelter caves with evidence of occupation. Hidden behind large pieces of breakdown from the cliffs above and not visible from below these soot covered shelters were home to someone in the past.
The final stop for most of the group was another shelter cave even higher up the canyon with a keyhole view out onto the valley. At that point the group divided into 2 with the majority heading back down the canyon while a hardier group continued up looking for a route to the top Magnus Dome.
Although only 3 miles was covered, hiking across the steep inclines made the trip more difficult. The map for this hike may be found here.
