Southern Utah’s Most Exciting Vertical Adventures!

Coming Spring 2014   

Canyoneering Instructional Courses!

Introduction to Canyoneering: Foundational Knowledge and Experience
Perfect for beginners with little or no rope experience, rappellers with limited background, or gym climbers who have some rope experience but no canyon-specific training.

Level II  Canyoneering: 2 Days – Building Competence
Level II focuses on recognizing and implementing safe canyon practices and skills needed to be a competent participant while canyoneering with a group.

Level III Canyoneering: 3 Days – Advanced Skills
Level III addresses the extensive skills required to be a competent canyoneer, able to address the comprehensive challenges faced in advanced-level canyoneering.

New Trips!

We’re adding two new areas and many routes to explore, so be sure to check back soon for the details:

This spring, we’ll be canyoneering at a higher altitude in a special area that combines alpine woods with the allure of a sandstone canyon flowing with clear water for a trip of pure enchantment.

We’ll also be heading deeper into history, exploring multiple routes – both canyons and climbs, your choice - in a massive geologic anticline of sandstone, shale, and limestone that began its formation 50 million years ago.

Moab Cliffs & Canyons and 127 Hours



We had the rare and special privilege
of working closely with Danny Boyle
and crew on this film, both for
pre-production scouting and on-site
safety rigging / stunt work.

Check out the photos!





This was a great sideline to our Moab trip. We can hike/bike on our own, but canyoneering isn't something we would have done on our own. So glad we did it!
