ACA L5 / Canyon Leader Assessment – CLICK HERE to RSVP

To become a L5 / Canyon Leader in the ACA you must pass the Canyon Leader assessment. Your skills, training, etc can be from any place or any classes you have taken. Bottom line is you need to pass the ACA assessment. It is a comprehensive assessment of the ACA skills checklists (Core, Aspirant, ACL, CL) and in canyon assessment.

TAKE NOTE– the skill checklists have been updated so make sure you have the current one which is located here: ACA Checklists
There will be a written exam, swim test, and in-canyon assessment in addition to assessing your skills.

THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP, meaning you should have a good understanding and know how to apply your skills already. You have some time to prepare and if you have questions or need clarification, please contact the assessment host.

RATE: $150.00 Per Person. Includes Tax and PayPal processing fees. Does not include Meetup processing fees.

Payments are Non-Refundable and Non-Transferable. No exceptions.

Transportation to/from training areas is not provided. Roads are rough. Please plan ahead with an appropriate vehicle.

We stock our favorite gear, equipment and ropes. ACA discounts are applied 🙂

The weather in Escalante can change quickly whether before the course or during it. We expect that you come prepared with rain jacket/gear.
