It is a non-technical canyon. In summer you might even do it not wearing a wetsuit, because water is not cold. Fishermen use to go fishing through Sanapite canyon. However it is not known to hikers or canyoneers.

I remember ...

I knew of Sanapite canyon from a mushroom seeker from Verzino. I met him while searching for the exit of another canyon. When I told him the reason why I was there, he gave me an advice: "I guess Sanapite is interesting to you: go and see".

A good advice!
