Pothole Workshop - 2 Days

Keeper Pothole Workshop

For many canyoneers, the ultimate in canyon obstacles is the Keeper Pot Hole.  Whether wet or dry, deep and or wide, these bizarre stone features have thwarted many canyon adventures.

Yes!  We have scheduled this course in August so that folks can stay in water for long periods of time without getting cold.  Don't forget your wetsuit!!

Join EOE for two days of intensive pothole training and begin learning the skill sets  to master these human traps.  Escalante is blessed with canyon “keepers” of nearly every shape and size imaginable, allowing participants to experience for themselves the true variety of pothole “problems” that exist.

Take a couple of days and turn these intimidating obstacles into one more canyon experience that is manageable and looked forward to with confidence and enthusiasm...One you may ultimately seek out with enthusiasm!

The first morning begins at 8AM and ends around 5pm-6pm. The second day begins at 8:00AM and ends between 5pm-6pm. This course has a 12 person maximum, 10 Students and 2 Instructors.

$325 Per Person includes all necessary gear (except wetsuits), lunch each day and coffee/tea each morning.  3 person minimum to conduct workshop.

 

Payment is made directly through Excursions of Escalante. Please contact Amie at[masked] or[masked] or e-mail [masked]

    This was a great class. Well worth it. Second day we went through a canyon with many potholes so it was great practice sequencing through the potholes and trying various techniques for escape. Learned some new things and got lots of practice on things I hadn't done much of before.

    This course was fantastic! Very in depth and LOTS of practical experience. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to advance their knowledge of pothole escape techniques.

    One day to go! Looking forward to some solid work and fun with you all. Potholes are in BRUTAL shape (big smile). No "beached whale" escapes this weekend! Cheers, Rick

    Amie - My wife may be coming up with me to spend some time in the area while I'm attempting to get out of potholes :) Any recommendations on some reasonably priced places to stay?
