wmc canyoneering ground school/workshop - December 9, 2017

New for the Wasatch Mountain Club! WMC member Shane Wallace is an ACA FS/SP Canyoneering Guide, and is excited to share some basic canyoneering skills with fellow clubbers. Space is limited, so register early. The objective of this clinic is to provide some basic personal canyoneering skills needed to descend easy canyons as team members with competent leaders and mentors, but we are not leaving the ground in this class (simulated rappelling only). Skills introduced will include: - Logistics and Safety - Leave No Trace Ethics - Rope and Equipment Care - Basic Knots - Intro to Anchors and Rigging - Whistle and Hand Signals. Equipment needed: a harness, rappelling device, 3 locking carabiners, practice rope 10' long around 9mm diameter (for knot tying), 15' of 1" tubular webbing and whatever else you may need to stay comfortable for the day such as water and snacks. If you don't have the equipment, coordinate with the organizer to arrange what you need to borrow. Participation space is limited to 10. No cost to WMC members, $10 for non-members.
