What is Canyoneering? Canyoneering is an emerging adventure sport that has grown significantly in popularity over the past decade. It combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, down-climbing, sometimes packrafting and always rappelling — often over waterfalls! Physically, it takes 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! This sport has unique risks and requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely ... and that's where we com in! This 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! https://vimeo.com/148696696 https://vimeo.com/104538804 INSTRUCTION: UBER Adventures is America’s premier Canyoneering Instruction, Events and Community!

What we're about

My name is Sara and I've being hiking for over 4 years to red rock canyon, Mount Charleston, Lake Mead, Bryce, and Zion National parks. I'm a CPR & FIRST AID CERTIFY. To be part of this group all you need is to have the spirit.

Please always read the entire description on any events we post which includes this posting. It will save you a headache.

Please only people over the age of 18, unless the hiking or trip says otherwise. . The fun part to belong to this site is to do other activities too. I promise you that we'll have the best time hiking, while we meet new friends. So lets start exploring new places together. If you're new to hiking, believe me that you won't regret joining this team. I'm always open for suggestions, if you feel you want to do something else e.g. Movies, road trips, camping, or any other outdoor activity just shoot me an email and we'll try to accommodate a date. I love fiction as preference but no horror.

Although the meetup is free of charge to you; don't forget that the Organizer to this or any other meetup has to pay an annual fee to keep the website active. Besides, your organizers spent hours doing research and organizing events for you, all you do is just RSVP to those events. Therefore, I will be asking for an annual membership fee of $10; your guest do not ever have to pay for the membership, just you. Any other contribution you give will be appreciated. This is not a profit organization, so the rest of the money collected will be use to help with rides or provide backpacks to those hikers who cannot afford them.

Please bring $10 cash to your first meetup with us and give it to your organizer on that day. Thank you for your understanding

Please put a picture of yourself... We are all adults and if I'm going in a hike with you, I don't want to be looking for a dog or your idol. I won't accept anyone with an inappropriate photo or with no personal names. This is not a dating site but a group of individuals who enjoy participating hiking and doing other healthy activities together. I won't even reply back why you are not been accepted. You should know why. And answer the questions with complete sentences., this is not a multiple choice question where you'll just type yes or no. I'll approve only with complete answers and a picture of yourself. If you were not accepted, please go back and check your profile and it will tell you why. Feel free to re-apply again with the correct and appropriate answers. Also I need for you to email me your full name with a contact name and relationship, phone numbers, if you're allergic to anything, and if you're taking any medications. All this information will help search and rescue in case of an emergency.

At the very bottom of this information you will find the "Liability Form", It is your responsibility to copy and paste on a pdf file and print the form. You will need that Liability form on your first hike with us. I won't be taking anyone without that form. I will have hard copies for $1. YOur choice to do it yourself or pay a $1

If I decline you, might be because you didn't comply with the requirements, but you're always welcome to try again with complete information. I cannot be sending individual messages. Remember, this is not my only life, I Also work and have family. I'll appreciate your response.

Please always know that you are responsible for your own safety as for those who accompany you to any meetup or activities we do together. Your organizer or host is not responsible in any way if anything would happen to you or your guests. Please take the same precaution you would if hiking alone.
