Canyoneering Advanced/Progressive Course

Price/Person $650.00  (2 person minimum) 3 days/6-8 hours
The Canyoneering Advanced/Progressive Course is designed to identify current ability levels and start teaching advanced canyoneering techniques from there. This course demands a more flexible itinerary and curriculum because of differing levels of knowledge and experience. After a review of basic and intermediate systems and techniques we will start in on the Advanced Curriculum. Each day we complete a new canyoneering route.
