This course is the perfect primer for those who have never touched a rope looking to begin canyoneering along with those wanting to refresh their understanding of the many core concepts. The basics are a critical starting point for every responsible individual entering the canyons. Throughout the course you will learn to identify and understand core concepts of trip planning, equipment, rappelling, rigging, canyon movement, overall general safety and much more. The goal of this course is to have you leave understanding the core concepts of canyoneering, so you can become a contributing team member while in canyon with competent leaders and mentors.
We will spend 2 days together going over core concepts with some time spent in a classroom type environment and the bulk of the time outdoors putting the freshly acquired skills to use. Basic skills covered:
>LOGISTICS & SAFETY
>LEAVE NO TRACE ETHICS
>ROPE & EQUIPMENT CARE
>INTRO TO ANCHORS AND RIGGING
*The course will pull various skills from the list above based on time.
