Many of the courses, rendezvous and events listed here are offered by ACA instructors, guides and leaders, but the calendar is not limited to ACA events. Our goal is to serve you and support local and regional meetups and groups by providing one source of information that is definitely worth a bookmark.
Most of the events are imported automatically from various canyoneering sources, so there may be duplicate events if the organizers listed them in more than one place.
Events can be viewed as a chronological list or in calendar format.
If you are aware of an event that is not included in our calendar, please let us know. Submit events to: email@example.com

Advanced Canyoneering Course
April 26, 2018 @ 8:30 am - April 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Advanced Canyoneering Course
The Advanced Course is designed to help make that next step to having the added skill set to get you out on longer trips, with more obstacles to encounter. It gives you the confidence to drag your little sister through a canyon and get her out safely.
The Advanced course will be taught over a 3+ day in canyon environment. We will be meeting in the North Wash having classroom sessions early and canyon exploits later in the day.
Completion of a Course covering the basic or Technical Canyoneering Skill set or instructor approval is a Pre-requisite to taking this course. This course builds on those levels with Level 3 Skills.
The course will be building on techniques and systems taught in the Technical Canyoneering course and you will learn:
Knots and Anchor systems, Obstacle and Problem Avoidance, Efficient Canyon Movements, Sequencing, Pre Rigged Rappels, Courtesy Rappels, Simul Rappels, Intro of Mechanical Advantage and Self and Buddy Rescue, Pot Holes, Team Movement, Transient Anchors, Rigging for problem solving, Efficient Gear Use and Consolidation, Risk and Canyon Assessments, etc.
Gear requirements: At this stage in Canyoneering Personal gear should be a priority for the Canyoneer to have and start using. More advanced gear will be provided as needed. Participants should be prepared to arrive on time with proper gear and attire for the weekend. Please wear sturdy shoes (nothing open toed). If items are needed, please consider purchasing them through North Wash Outfitters (https://squareup.com/market/NorthWashOutfitters). We do offer a 15% student discount on gear purchased through our store to those in attendance for the courses we offer.
We will do a bonus night time canyon decent for those who arrive Wednesday evening.
All Food, Travel, and Camping is on your own.
