Canyon Leadership Awareness and Rescue Workshop

You’ve been canyoneering for a few years and have built up an impressive resume. Now you find all your friends are asking you to take them canyoneering! Taking less experienced friends into canyons means assuming responsibility for their safety. Join us for this hands on workshop that will give you an opportunity to share experiences with other canyoneers, practice safe group management techniques and learn additional self-rescue skills. You will even participate in a mock rescue to demonstrate the reality of what is involved in an actual rescue. Participant skill level required: intermediate to expert. FREE to all registered festival attendees.

    Charlie, Clint, Hank--thanks for leading the leadership workshop, I got a lot of great tips and a bit of nostalgia from my rescue days during the patient carry out. Clint asked for any comments and I've only have one--having a litter for the rescue made the rescue easier than it would be if one were trying to carry out a person with out SAR rescue--so perhaps next time try it with out a pre-made litter--that is if the SAR team is willing to let us beat up on the practice dummy...

    A humbling and illuminating day with 3 luminaries in American Canyoneering, Charly Oliver, Hank Moon and Clint Poole. Thanks!

    Thanks instructors. This was completely worthwhile. The scenarios were especially instructive: even the issues of excessive engineering and fuzzy leadership and communication were things that always need to be addressed. I am especially glad we got to take a litter through a canyon. And I hope never to have to do it for real.

    A huge thank you to our leader/hosts Charly, Hank and Clint for spending your day insisting us. I was reminded again how teamwork with effective communication go hand in hand. It truly was a day well spent. Thanks!

    Great class. Group was just a bit too big. Would have been a little easier/nicer with 10-12 people max. But it was very do-able anyway!

    This was a day very well spent. There were no massive learnings for me but many, many small points learned from the 3 great instructors and from fellow participants. Thanks to the instructors and thanks to all for being part of a valuable and wonderful day.
