Practice (CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN)

Now that you've taken the Technical Canyoneering Course it’s time to get out and practice your new skills so that they don't get rusty.

This 'practice' does not include ANY instruction. I am NOT a professional rappeller, guide or instructor. This 'practice' is only for people who have graduated from a 3-day Technical Canyoneering Course by Uber Adventures.

What we will review and everyone will participate in:

Anchors: Building both natural and artificial anchors. Anchor inspection.

Rigging:  Knot Block, Biner Block and Contingency 8 Block.

Rope Management: Coiling, bagging, measuring and deploying.

Rappelling: Basic locking off and self rescue. Also, we will be rappelling from higher points and doing more technical types of rappels; overhangs, traverses, hard starts and of course my favorite the “crack”

Fireman Belaying: Extremely important and almost never practiced.

Gear you MUST have no exceptions!!
Helmet, harness, descending device, at least 4 HMS locking carabiners and safety tethers, 48' runner & prusik.

I will provide ropes, but if you have your own bring it. Webbing and rapides would be nice as well. Rapides can be purchased at Home Depot for $2.20 each. These are 5/16’’ oval, buy the metal one’s and forget the expensive stainless.

If you don’t have rope yet maybe it’s time you talk to Klaus.

    Too late for me to ask for time off (I work weekends) but if I have the day off, I'll come by. Thanks, Freddy!
