WHAT IS CANYONEERING

Canyoneering is the exploration and descent of water carved drainages. These routes are one way only.  Vertical drops that can not be reverse once descended create an elevated sense of adventure. Canyoneering routes are flood pathways with potential for flash floods, this is of course how they were created. The more violent and powerful the flood, the more beautiful the canyon. Southwest United States and specifically Utah holds the highest concentration of technical slot canyons in the world.

TRIP LOGISTICS

Trips are available seven days a weeks year round. We guide a variety of canyons depending on type of trip, starting location, canyon conditions, and abilities. All technical equipment is included – helmets, harnesses, ropes, rappel devices, etc. Transportation is provided from the starting location to the canyon trailhead and back. Half day trips are available both AM and PM and allow visitors enough time to hike Zion attractions on their own the same day.

INSTRUCTIONAL CANYONEERING COURSES

We teach modern canyoneering techniques and systems. Our curriculum has evolved over time into what we believe are the most practical courses available. Available seven days a week year round. All courses are private and take place in area canyoneering routes. Courses are appropriate for guests intending to lead canyoneering routes on their own.
