    Highly recommend taking this course from North Wash Outfitters. Jared is an excellent instructor and he makes sure everyone gets enough practice to be confident with their newly learned canyoneering techniques. I look forward to taking the advanced course from NWO.

    This was an excellent class, put on by a first rate instructor. Excellent classroom discussions and very good practical practice on the rock and in the canyons. Three days is a nice length for getting experience on the many skills that are required for canyoneering. The agenda was a good format with the first day in the class, and the next two outside.

    The course was really good. We had some good students with the desire to learn and get involved. Makes it really fun. We learned some good techniques and had a lot of opportunities to see them play out in real canyon environments and situations. The students walked away with some new found skills and a deeper love and respect for the sport.
