What we're about

From Phoenix to all points North, South, East & West .. this region of America is bursting with canyoneering opportunities! With its proximity to the canyons of Utah, Nevada and California, (not to mention the great local selection of canyoneering opportunities from the Tonto to the Superstitions, to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon) Central Arizona is a hot spot for the sport of Canyoneering. The purpose of this Meetup Group is to connect people in Arizona with each other, and with the communities of California and the greater Southwest. We will offer regular qualified instruction for the sport of canyoneering, as well as ACE Certified Guide Assessments, and other outdoor/wilderness skills courses like Wilderness First Aid, Meteorology, and Map-and-Compass Navigation. In addition to our courses, which are the core of this organization, we will host canyoneering events and festivals in canyoneering regions across America and will do our best to nurture leaders to help provide opportunities for local canyon descents, practices, workshops, and community meetings. Anybody with the desire to learn canyoneering and anybody who already canyoneers ... this is your group. "Pay for the training and your fun is free!"

Tucson, AZ - Technical Canyoneering Course (ACE-L1) - NEW LOCATION!!

Windy Point Vista

$395.00

TECHNICAL CANYONEERING COURSE (ACE-L1)

We are excited to pilot a course in our new Tucson location!

What is Canyoneering?

Canyoneering is an adventure sport that combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, down-climbing, sometimes packrafting and always rappelling — often over waterfalls! Physically, it takes significantly less upper body strength than rock climbing and is therefore a sport that can be enjoyed by a much larger spectrum of the population - young or mature, tall or short, large or small. If you can hike, you can canyoneer! Our basic course gets you from "That looks cool!" to "Woohoo!" in 3 days! Check out these Vimeos and see why we are hooked on the sport!
