The Technical Canyoneering course is the premier Flagship introduction to canyoneering beginners course. It designed to give you the confidence you need to pursue your canyoneering explorations further and take it to that next level.
The course discusses beginning and intermediate techniques helping you to feel more comfortable in a canyon setting with ropes, rappelling, movement and evaluation of the canyon environment. The class prepares you to travel through canyons rated up to 3B in the technical canyon rating system. The course meets on the first day with in-class, hands-on technique discussions and theories. The Second day is on rope and rock all day practicing and refining techniques and skills. On Day Three we discuss the anchors and then access some canyons for hands on drills, practicals and assessments. The Technical Canyoneering course, will satisfy prerequisites for other Advanced and Rescue courses.
