Keeper Pothole Workshop – Small Group & Big Day!

For many canyoneers, the ultimate in canyon obstacles is the Keeper Pothole. Whether wet or dry, deep and or wide, these bizarre sandstone features have thwarted many canyon adventures.

Join Excursions of Escalante for an introduction to potholes and begin learning the skill sets required to master these human traps. Escalante is blessed with canyon “keepers” of nearly every shape, size and challenge imaginable. This allows participants to spend the entire day experiencing (not simulating) the true variety of pothole “problems” that exist in the wild.

We have an 8 Student Maximum to ensure that students get the most focused and safest training possible. ***You MUST HAVE solid rope skills and be a confident swimmer to participate in this course! NO EXCEPTIONS.

The day begins at 7:30AM and end around 3:30pm-4:30pm. Students should plan to be with us for a minimum of 8 hours.

Prerequisites: Completion of Technical Canyoneering Course or equivalent experience. This course is not geared for beginner canyoneers. Please inquire if additional information if needed.

$195 Per Person. Includes lunch, coffee/tea in the morning & ice cream in the afternoon. 5 person minimum to conduct workshop. Tax not included.

Please contact Amie at 1.435.826.4714 or email with any questions.
