Classic Canyon & Fall Creek 3AIII

This is not a guided trip. You are responsible for your own safety
and gear.

Now that you have graduated from the technical course it's time to get in a canyon. This is the perfect beginner canyon. If you don't have rope see Klaus. 

Group gear: 
2 X 200' Rope 
120' Rescue Rope 
Webbing & Rapides 
First Aid Kit

**REQUIREMENTS to join this event as well as any of the other recreational events posted on this Meetup Group, are that you must have taken the Uber Adventures 3-day Technical Canyoneering Course. (Exceptions may be made for those who have taken an approved equivalent course, or for those who have SIGNIFICANT canyoneering experience ... Approval for these exceptions are at the discretion of the event host AND/OR the group organizer.)

**NOTE: Since this is not a guided trip and because canyoneering is a team sport where every member should be able to rappel well, inspect anchors, build new anchors, rig for all contingencies, manage ropes efficiently and contribute in every aspect of the adventure, anyone who's profile does not reflect the appropriate training or sufficient experience will not be allowed to participate. PLEASE KEEP YOUR PROFILE ACCURATE & UP-TO-DATE! If at the trailhead for this event you do not have the beta and map for the canyon, a harness, helmet, rappel device, safety tether, footloop for self rescue, sufficient protection from the heat or cold, and sufficient water for the intended exertion, you will be turned-away from the event for not being prepared. If you are unable to contribute group gear (i.e.: bagged rope, webbing, rapides or first aid kit), or you are unable or unwilling to help carry group gear, you may be turned-away from the event.

**RELEASE OF LIABILITY: All participants in this event will be required to sign a release/waiver and acknowledgment of risk form. This form is available for your prior inspection in the MORE/FILES section of this Meetup. http://files.meetup.com/2021701/CCM%20Release%20of%20Liability%20%26%20Waiver.pdf Please read, print, fill-out, sign and bring it to this event or you will not be able to participate. (The Event Host will try to have copies available the morning of the event, but you should not count on it ... it is YOUR responsibility to bring it!)

Classic Canyon is a small lateral ravine that tumbles down the cliff wall of Big Tujunga Canyon a short distance downstream of the point where the Fall Creek fire road crosses the river. It is readily accessed from that fire road just a few hundred yards above the Big Tujunga. This is a short adventure hike that rappels down three dryfalls the last one being about 160ft high.

Fall Creek is a small tributary of Mill Creek that tumbles down the cliff wall of Big Tujunga Canyon a little distance downstream of the point where the Fall Creek fire road crosses the river. These waterfalls are readily viewed (and studied) from the fire road on the other side of the canyon and so, unlike most other hikes, you have a chance to plan your rappels in advance.

This is a relatively short adventure hike that rappels down the four waterfalls by which Fall Creek makes its dramatic entrance into the Big Tujunga. These rappels are quite demanding (the last and highest is about 70ft high) and should only be undertaken after some simpler experiences. They represent an exciting (and wet) challenge, ideal for a warm spring or summer day.

THE MEET UP TIME AT RALPH'S WILL BE AT 7AM. We will then consolidate cars and drive to the trailhead together. Long pants and shirt is advised.

    Good!!! group today, lots of teamwork. If I had known it was going to be 101 degrees I would set this for Winter..It was hot. Claasic/Fall was bone dry. All in all a pretty fun day and a nice group of guys.

    Hi Freddy!
    I injured my back today at work lifting some equipment cases. I was waiting if it would get better during the day but it has gotten worse. I don't want to be a liability to the group or not being able to contribute by not carrying rope. So I'm cancelling for tomorrow. I think it's for the best :-(
    Have fun everybody and thank you for the opportunity Freddy! Next time!

    A couple of reminders. Wear long pants, bring water & a light lunch. Our feet will get wet, so a second pair of dry shoes and socks is recommended. Bring ropes, the beta and check your gear the night before to make sure you have everything, and BRING the signed release/waiver. I will be there early-parked next to the Sizzlers Restaurant in a black Ford Explorer. If anyone is running late call me[masked]

    There is freeway construction on the 210 and Sunland exit is closed. If your headed from the valley exit Wheatland and go right on Foothill follow it all the way up to Sunland be on the lookout for the Ralph's-Those coming from LA exit La Tuna Cyn stay on that to Sunland (it's a bit of a drive) go right and head all the way up. The start time will be given some slack. Here's my cell if your running late or need help. [masked]

    Here is the coordinates for both exits

    Wheatland from the valley: [masked], [masked]

    La Tuna from LA:[masked], [masked]
