Bonita Canyon drops from San Sevaine ridge precipitously into the rugged canyon of South Fork Lytle Creek. As it approaches the canyon wall, it drops to the canyon floor in a series of spectacular waterfalls – one of 140′, one of 30′, and the last of 160′. Water flows year round here, even in the dry months. This video was shot on 2/14/15 with good water flow.
A first person perspective captured via helmet-mounted GoPro camera rappelling down the spectacular 160′ tall Bonita Falls in the San Gabriel Mountains. Here I am LMAR, a canyoneering acronym for Last Man At Risk, meaning the last person over the edge. Please forgive the clicking sound – it’s a piece of metal on the GoPro tether that keep banging on my helmet. I have since removed it of course.
