Foolin’ Around is the eastern of the three upper West Forks of Butler Canyon, in North Wash. It is a fun, enjoyable canyon with just a hint of the “problems” found next door, in Shenanigans. A nice canyon in a wilderness setting, "FA" has a pleasant, casual rhythm to it, moving in and out of interesting narrows and rappels, that makes it a good choice for a low-stress day.
The only water (usually) is in the last narrows, which also involves the highest, hardest climbing problems. This section can be walked around (with a bit of scrambling to get back down) if the desire to stay dry and warm is stronger than the desire to experience the best part of the canyon. Other sections in the canyon include a bit of strenuous squeezing, but nothing too narrow.
Several exit choices are available. The easiest exit climbs slabs west at the top of the last rappel, gains the ridge between Foolin’ and Shenanigans and returns to the car in perhaps an hour. Or, after completing the last rap, hiking downcanyon leads to the “Kelsey Exit” (back up to the “Four-way junction”); or follow the canyon all the way down to Three-Forks on Highway 95.
