Learn the first half of basic canyoneering techniques!     

Canyoneering and Canyoning are terms used to describe an adventure sport that combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, rock-climbing, sometimes packrafting and always rappelling — often over waterfalls.

Canyoneering is an emerging adventure sport in the US, and has grown significantly in popularity over the past decade.  This sport has unique risks and requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely.  Rock-climbing, caving, mountaineering and swift water training teach related skills for your ‘toolbox’, but Canyoneering has become highly specialized, and much of the gear and many of the techniques of Canyoneering are distinctly different from those of the other sports …and, that’s where we come in!

Prerequisite: None

This is a beginner to intermediate course which teaches the On-Rope Skills (Rappelling, Self-Rescue) and the Fundamentals (Communication, Rating System, Gear, Safety) of the sport of canyoneering!  This course covers HALF of the comprehensive skills necessary to safely descend canyons as part of a group (being a competent participant and the knowledge to recognize and implement safe canyon practices). This day of training is the first half of a 2-part course (ACE-L1a & ACE-L1b) designed to quickly get the beginner up-to-speed on basic rappelling, gear, lingo and safety; and to give both the rookie and intermediate canyoneer new tools for his/her toolbox, and will help intermediate cayoneers refine their current skill set!  The topics and skills covered will include:

  • Canyon Rating System
  • Rules, Ethics, Style, Communication and Courtesy
  • Specific Gear Choices, Requirements, Use and Care
  • Belays
  • Rappelling Techniques & On-Rope Skills 
    (Adding Friction Pre-rappel, Mid-rappel, Locking Off, etc.)
  • Specialized Rappelling Techniques 
    (Hard Starts, Soft Starts, Free-Hanging, Over-Hanging, etc.)
  • Safety Checking and Basic Self-Rescue
  • And, within each of these broad subjects are a myriad of skills and tools.

The cost of this course is only $249 per person with a 2-person minimum! (The course fee is non-refundable, but may be put toward a future class during the same calendar year if 30 days notice are given, cancelling your participation in this course.)  Please read more course/company policies here.

Required gear for this course is a harness and a helmet (we can loan these out if you don’t have them … and we will offer a 10% discount for any gear bought before or after the course, and we’ll also be loaning out carabiners, descenders, tethers, foot loops, prussiks, etc.  Feel free to borrow our gear for this course, until you determine what your needs will be.

**Consider purchasing our gear kit (or part of it) from our online store for this course, and for your future in this sport!  http://uberadventures.net/product/basic-canyoneering-gear-kit/**
