San Antonio Creek (3BIII)
San Anonio Creek, 3BIII BETA: http://ropewiki.com/San_Antonio_Creek WEATHER: It will be cold and wet - Baldy has been getting snow. If the weather/conditions are going to be extreme/dangerous, an alternative (such as Rubio) may be chosen or the event may be cancelled. PERSONAL GEAR: You MUST have a harness, a helmet, 3 locking carabiners (minimum), safety-tether, rappel device, 48" footloop and BETA to attend this event. Bring adequate water and snacks and dress for the weather/conditions. GROUP GEAR: 2x additional ropes (host will bring 1x 200' rope), extra webbing and 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 3-day course, or for those who have SIGNIFICANT canyoneering experience. Approval for these exceptions are at the discretion of the group organizer, Klaus Gerhart.) 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, foot loop 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 or unwilling to contribute group gear (ie: 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.

What we're about

There are many canyoneering opportunities throughout the Southwest! From San Diego, through the San Gabriels and San Bernardinos, the Los Padres, the Sierra and as far north as Death Valley in California (and beyond); not to mention those near Las Vegas, those scattered through Arizona and those bursting from the seams of the topographic maps of Utah. The purpose of this Meetup Group is to connect people in the Southwest for this adventure activity/sport/passion and to provide certified instruction, experiential education, canyoneering opportunities and an introduction to the Canyoneering Community in a safe and fun way. Anybody with the desire to learn canyoneering and anybody who already canyoneers ... this is your group. Tho located in California, the area this Meetup Group covers includes Nevada, Colorado, Arizona and Utah. (Note: By basing it in Southern California, trips of greater distance are made more plausible by cost-sharing travel expenses!)
