3-Day Hybrid Advanced Canyoneering Course (ACE L1 and L2) Moab, UT – LADIES ONLY!!!

May 19 - May 21


LADIES ONLY – Hybrid Advanced Canyoneering Course (ACE L1 and L2) Moab, UT   

This 3-Day Combined Canyoneering Course (ACE L1 and L2) is NOT a beginner class. You must have a base set of canyoneering skills and your own gear to register for this class. This class is designed to review and catch any gaps that might exist in the Technical Canyoneering Course (ACE L1) materials as well as provide students with the Advanced Canyoneering (ACE L2) tools needed to jump to the next level of technical skill and become competent and safe canyoneers in ALL classes of canyons. It also touches on techniques and skills for the Canyon Leader (ACE L3) and Canyon Rescue (ACE L4) classes. The practical experience that you gain during this course will give you the knowledge and confidence to tackle advanced canyon obstacles and many unexpected situations. This extremely popular curriculum has set the standard by which all other courses and curriculums may be judged. This course was designed primarily to meet the needs of recreational canyoneers but also forms the training foundation for those planning to seek certification as a Professional Canyon Guide (ACE L5).

In addition to the Friday-Saturday-Sunday class, there will be an opportunity to descend a canyon together on the Monday after class. This is not a guided trip. The instructor will be along to support you as you descend the canyon.
