Our Expert Canyoneering Instructors will lead you on our canyoneering canyons adventure that will include improving the art, the technique, partaking in all the various activities of canyoneering, and having a blast all along the way!
Canyon Essentials Course (ACE-L3) is designed to prepare some for Leading Canyons, and others for an improved toolbox of skills; specifically providing the next level of skills training through technical instruction and experiential practice.
While these tools are a vital component for any active canyoneer, they are imperative for anyone leading rookies, kids, family or friends into a canyon. This course provides strategic training for unexpected technical and group management challenges … when things don’t go quite as planned! While this course is designed primarily to meet the needs of recreational canyoneers, it also serves as a bridge between the Advanced Canyoneering Course (ACE-L2) and the Canyon Rescue Course (ACE-L4), and forms the training foundation for those planning to seek certification as a Professional Canyon Guide (ACE-L5)!
Skills covered include:
-Alternate Guided Rappel Options to keep people dry
-Group Gear Choices & Distribution, Pack Management
-Strand Isolation and Leapfrogging for speeding things up
-Static Courtesy Rappels to make hard-starts easier
-Dynamic Courtesy Rappels to make super-hard-starts safer and easier
-Lowering Systems for emergencies and speed
-Pre-Rigged Rappels and Rigging Kids for Rappel
-Static & Dynamic Edge Protection to increase rope life
-Direct Top Belays, Handlines and Sequencing
-Passing Knots on Ascend and Rappel
-Converting Static Block to Lowering System for assist or rescue
-Isolating In-Field Rope Damage (Core Shot)
-Constructing a Swiss Seat or Swami for rescue or gear failure
-Rappelling on a Munter for emergencies
-Advanced Friction Options
Since this course builds upon the skills and techniques presented in our Technical Canyoneering Course (ACE-L1) AND our Advanced Canyoneering Course (ACE-L2), we recommend that you’ve either taken both courses or have significant relevant personal experience before taking this class (please inquire if you’re unsure if this is the correct course for your current skill set).
Come join us on this canyoneering adventure, improve your skills, learn the art and skill of canyoneering, and have a lot of fun with our highly skilled instructors as we swim, jump, rock climb, packraft, rappel, and more!
-We provide a place to camp, but no camping gear. You must bring your own camping gear if you choose to camp with us.
-The course fee is non-refundable, but may be put toward a future class during the same calendar year if 31 days notice is given. If 31 days notice is not given, there will be no refunds or changes to your itinerary.
-We reserve the right to change or cancel any itinerary at any time if there are not enough students registered or if in our opinion, conditions so require. If we must cancel a course, you may either join a future course or request a full refund. Inclement weather is not necessarily reason enough to cancel a course. If we believe we can teach a majority of the curriculum in less-than-ideal weather, we will! If there isn’t sufficient time given to practical exercises due to conditions, you may attend the relevant day of a future course, free of charge.
