These are our most popular tours! Guests learn basic down climbing skills, such as mantling, seated bridging and partner assists. They also experience the basic fundamentals of rope work, including belayed down climbs and rappels up to 100ft. Our goal is to slowly introduce guests to the very basic and safe principles of canyoneering. These canyons are truly “off the beaten path”. It may also inspire the confidence to get out and safely explore a few canyons on your own sometime.
