ATS Adventurworks. Courses, guided trips, and resources in canyoneering, mountaineering, and rock climbing.

Self Rescue is a technical canyon descent focusing on detailed advanced intermediate evaluations and experience. This is a "team-based evolution" as every person is now trained to be a member of a canyon descent team. After a morning of technical training on rope ascension and alternative descending methods, the team will take the instructors down a nearby canyon route. Along the way the instructors will manipulate the situation to challenge every member equally.

    Today we teach you what to do if your rope is stuck, or if your rope is too short, or if your rope has been damaged - all the basics of self-rescue. Learning self-rescue is an integral part to becoming a competent canyoneer. Our Los Angeles self-rescue course takes place at our indoor training facility.  You will have a chance to learn how to safely ascend ropes with minimal gear, rappel past knots, and run multiple training iterations. Your brain will be completely full by the end of this day. We typically finish up around sunset to give people plenty of time to get home or catch a flight.

  • 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.

     

     

    Each student must have completed our Level 1 - Intro to Canyoneering Course and our Level 2 - Anchors prior to enrollment. Equivalent courses will be considered.
