Are you new to Canyoneering? If not, how long have you been Canyoneering?

I have been canyoneering for 35 years, mostly non technical. I used to be a rock climber - leading 5.10 in the pre sport climbing days.

Have you taken any technical courses relating to Canyoneering? If so, what courses have you taken?

ART of Canyoneering and RAT Level I from Rich Carlson

Do you have your own Canyoneering gear? Please list what you have, not "some".

All personal gear required plus 120, 200, and 300 foot Imlay static ropes.

Please list canyons you have done (Nevada, Utah, CA, other).

In the last few years I have done canyons in Zion (Engelstead, Mystery, Pine, Das Boot, Keyhole), LA (Lower Eaton, Great Falls of the Fox), North Wash (Slideanide, Shillelagh, Miss Piggy, Hogwarts, Merry Piglet), Arizone (Christopher Creek, Parker, Salame Jug), Ouray CO (Portland, Anglel, Lower Oak, Deadwood), Death Valley (two first descents in the Tuchi Mountains), California (Seven Tea Cups, Log Ride, Rattlesnake), and many other non technical canyons.


My favorite part of the world is the southern Utah / northern Arizona. I typically spend 1-2 weeks each year exploring canyon country with friends.
