Canyoneering skills session

Hey Everyone,

Richard is going to lead a rapel session at Mission Gorge. This is the first of hopefully a monthly canyoneering session in the local area. This will help us build skills that will prepare us for bigger canyoneering adventures like Zion and Moab. This is also our first session and is really more of a recon mission to just scout it out and get the kinks worked out, so I would like to limit this meetup to members that have some climbing/rapelling experience. The future sessions will be open to beginners or anyone who is interested in exploring this kind of stuff. So, look for future postings coming soon!

Here is a NCA Google Map.

See you out there!

    Jim/Richard how about a list of basic equipment we should be gathering so we are a little more prepared for next time?

      Hey Chris, my bad. I have been meaning to forward an email that Richard sent me about a week ago. I will add it to the event description. See you at the next one?

    Hey Chris, Thanks for the question. Basic equipment includes climbing harness, rock shoes, helmet, belay device, locking belay biner, and a personal anchor. I have a couple extra of all of the above if anyone needs it. My extra rock shoes are mens 14 and womens 8.

    I am excited to try this out once the "kinks" are worked out. Keep me posted. I have done a little climbing but I still consider myself a beginner.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
