Canyoneering is the exploration of a canyon from point A to point B using a range of techniques that include hiking, scrambling, sliding, stemming, chimneying and rappelling. Set in Utah’s rugged southwest terrain, these expeditions explore sections of canyon few ever get to see, allowing space to focus on your present task at hand and the people surrounding you. As you ascend steep-sided mesas, navigate in and out of box canyons and seek out your next water source, you’ll realize that this austere, delicate environment holds lessons for the present and the future. Canyoneering crosses terrain demanding of teamwork and effective decision-making to maneuver its twists, turns and drops. You’ll walk away with a newfound admiration for teamwork, wild adventure and the satisfaction that’s only felt after emerging from deep inside a canyon into the desert sunlight.
Challenge, distance traveled and skill-intensity varies across course and program lines.
