“An easy way to make Steve's Loop much shorter - which is NOT recommended!
— Nicholas Shannon
This allows you to shorten Steve's Loop
, but that would be a big mistake - Steve's Loop
But if you must... from Mary's Loop
, look for a huge cairn at the end of the slot canyon. Scramble down the lip into the canyon. Once you're in the canyon, it's an easy flat hike to join Steve's Loop
