introduction to technical canyoneering - October 9, 2009

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
The North Wash is a great place to get started and learn some of the basics of canyoneering, with something for everyone in these wonderful southern utah sandstone slots. We will drive down Friday after work, and do canyons Saturday and Sunday, returning home Sunday night. If you have not been on a previous canyoneering trip with me, as a prerequisite you need to have taken one of the club rappelling classes, or other wise convince me that you have qualifying experience on rappel.(there will be another class on September 26th) This trip is intended for those who have not already been to North Wash yet. You will need full canyoneering gear, with a harness, descender and helmet, along with some protective body armor, which will be explained as we go along. This trip is now full, it will be repeated in March.
