We will provide beta, suggestions, GPS tracks and help you with appropriate canyon selections. We will have sign-up sheets at night to help you organize canyon trips. Please note we do NOT, however, put the canyon trips together. This is all up to the participants to organize and execute. We cannot guarantee you a place on any canyon trip.
Folks leading canyons are NOT guides and are not paid. They are just helping with logistics. Who goes on the trip is solely up to them. You MUST be an active participant in the canyon and be completely self-sufficient. You must have all your own gear. Most canyons require a wetsuit.
Here are some suggested canyons below with a link to the beta, maps, photos and GPS tracks:

Canyoneering is a personal choice and requires personal responsibility. Canyoneering and associated activities are dangerous and can result in injury and/or death. Canyoneering exposes you to risks. Risks are not eliminated by training or skill. By your participation in any activity or event, you accept and assume any and all risks, including those created by negligence, connected to such activity or event.
If you wish to participate you should be physically and mentally prepared with the appropriate gear. You are responsible for your own safety, not the person leading the event. You should always be aware of the risks involved in outdoor activities and conduct yourself accordingly.
