canyoneering 101 at north wash - March 24, 2007

The Irish canyons in Northwash are short, but a delight. Often referred to as a great schoolyard to learn Canyoneering 101, I see it as more of a playground. Driving down Friday after work, for a full weekend of fun. Although these canyons are light on rappelling, and more about down climbing and sliding, you do need to have taken a rappelling class, such as the one offered on March 17, so that you are comfortable and competent on a 100 ft'er. Car camping, with short and beautiful approach hikes, you will need a harness, descender and helmet, gloves and some disposable body armor. Sign up with Rick Thompson. (Previously discussed Friday canyoneering is now full, 3/5/07)
