The goal of these high adventure excursions is to expose our guests to more advanced canyons and their challenges (keeper potholes, anchorless features, etc). On these advanced excursions, movements must be slow and calculated. Equipment and energy must be used efficiently. To get in over your head here in Escalante can prove to have severe consequences for yourself or your team. These tours are very challenging, scenic and highly rewarding.
