Prerequisite - You must have attended a technical canyoneering course or have your attendance approved by the event host.
This is a free of charge practice session, not a class.
I'll bring one 9mm rope. If you have rope please bring it. Required equipment includes a helmet, harness, safety tether, rappel device, 6mm prusik cord, a self-rescue foot loop and a couple of locking carabiners. Also 2 qt of water and snack.
Standard Disclaimer: This is an outing of like minded people getting together to enjoy practicing some of the skills used in canyoneering. There is no guide, no instructor or person in charge. Each person is responsible for his/her own equipment and safety. Canyoneering is a dangerous sport that can lead to serious injury or death.
09:30 AM. Let's meet at the Dos Hombres (redlands) parking lot on Broadway just south of Colorado River bridge. We will carpool and/or caravan to the trailhead for Rough Canyon/ Mica Mine, up Little Park Road.
We'll probably go until 3-4 PM or when everyone has had enough. Look forward to seeing you.
