Mostly sandstone and rocky transitions, some tight turns, great views, good fun.
Little Canyon also provides access to lower Gemini Bridges road; it is your last chance to bail out before doing the entire Gold Bar Rim / Portal segment of Mag 7.

 Some tricky steps going down, I endo'd and banged my knee good. Commit and go hard.

I took Great Escape going back the other direction, and I didn't really think it was better than Arth's/LC, just different. Great Escape might be better going outbound.
