"Rich is a gifted instructor with a good sense of humor. I found his descriptions of complex (at least for me) systems and setups to be clear. He's also a great evaluator of skills assessment."

"ART of Canyoneering 3-day course was very informative. It included indoor class time & outdoor practical application. Rich is a "true" teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. I concur with others that this course was a bargain & absolutely worth my 8-hour drive to get there! I will be telling others about this course. Thank you, Rich, for your servitude."
