How often do you sit back and think about the “What ifs” in canyoneering? Have you played a rescue scenario in your head and wondered,” How would I solve this?” or “What could I do to help?” Canyoneering is a remote sport requiring at times “Self Rescue” techniques. This workshop is designed to give you a few extra tools to help with these situations should they arise.
