LOCATIONS, TIMES, & REGISTRATION

Perfect for beginners without any rope or harness experience, or for those that have been through a few canyon routes but without proper training. This full-day technical canyon descent focuses on a general introduction to the course.

 

Topics covered included how to setup the basic rope systems for the sport, a gear review, how to rappel properly including friction settings, various methods to backup yourself and your friends on rappel, and generally how to move through the canyon safely and efficiently.

  • DAY SCHEDULE

    You'll meet your instructor at a group meeting spot where final paperwork is

    signed and gear is checked out. We'll carpool from here to our canyon choice of the day. A moderate hike (1-3 miles) will take us to the drop in point for the canyon. A talk on personal protective equipment, the basic technical gear, the layering method, the TERM's of a canyon, and a rope talk will prepare us for our first rappel. The rest of the day will blur by as you learn to set your own ropes, put yourself on rappel, set your friction, and make your way safely down the waterfall. We'll finish the canyon at around sundown and head back to the Los Angeles area.

  • PREREQUISITES

    Canyoneering is a marathon not a sprint. There is typically a several mile hike into a canyon route while wearing a 20-30 pound backpack. This hike will at some points be on uneven terrain and at other times on an established trail. Between rappels in canyon you will have to hike and potentially do assisted down climbs on uneven terrain. You will potentially be exposed to cold water, high air temps, poisonous plants and animals, and adverse weather conditions.

     

    We have taken clients as young as 12 and as old as 72 into routes. Our main stipulation is you must fit within the size requirements for a harness (typically under a size 40 waist and under 350 pounds). Beyond that you should possess a general fitness level and enjoy hiking in the outdoors. If you have a specific question about the sport please contact us.
