Women's 2 Day Technical Canyoneering Course

Come train with Rick Green, Escalante canyon guide and President of the American Canyoneering Association. This two day course will be held in Escalante Utah where we are fortunate to be surrounded by dozens of accessible slot canyons for students to receive "in canyon" training. Your time is spent applying newly learned skills directly in a slot canyon environment. Prepare for big days of learning, teamwork and fun in a beautiful setting.

Goal: The objective of our Level 1 training is to teach the canyoneering skills needed to safely become an "active participant" in 3A and 3B rated canyons. An “active participant” is capable of evaluating and applying the basic fundamentals of safety, including confident rappelling and belaying (protecting partner), competence in identifying correct anchor and rigging techniques and have an understanding of environmental risks. This course will not prepare you for an advanced level canyon such as Imlay, Choprock, etc.. It will however empower you with the ability to see and experience some of the World's most stunning scenery.

Philosophy: Think Yoga, and not Ninja Warrior. The best canyoneers understand and apply super low impact techniques. Low impact on the environment and low impact on yourself. Keeping our heart rates and respirations to a minimum, avoiding over exertion or unnecessary stress is best. "Aggressive" movement or behavior is not only less safe but also impacts the environment negatively. Good canyoneers are kind to the environment and kind to each other...in my observations.
