    Parker and Brandon showed us lots of good rope tricks and how and when to use them. It was very useful to work through multiple scenarios involving rope problems and learn how they could be solved. The group was friendly and helpful and I look forward to canyoneering with all of them in future. Thank you, Parker, for being an outstanding instructor in this field. Please sign me up for your next class!
