Excursions of Escalante is proud to collaborate with the American CanyoneeringAcademy (ACA) in offering basic and advanced canyoneering workshops.
Our "Technical Course" will be taught , by Rick Green and/or Jim Clery, both Certified ACGA (American Canyon Guides Association) Instructors. Guests will receive instruction in efficient wilderness travel, rappelling, basic rope work, as well as canyon down climbing techniques. The "Basic" classroom will take place in the canyons and on the rope. These are active classes and will require the application of new skills in the canyon environment. This will make the learning easy and lasting as well as get us out on the slick rock....which is a good thing.
Rick and Jim will also take the lead instructing our "Advanced Courses". Guests can anticipate long days in the canyons with practical training in "keeper pothole" escapes, safe natural anchors, extended rappels (up to 300 ft.) and other advanced canyon "problems". Canyon leadership roles, spotting and risk assessment are just a few of the many other valuable topics covered in the course. If you have completed the ACA Technical Course and are proficient with those skills, then you are ready take the Advanced Course.
