You may get tired of me writing. But I will never get tired of meeting good quality ZAC guides.
My son and I hiked Water Canyon on June 16. We first encountered Bailey and later in the day BJ. I made sure I did not inturrupt Bailey's instruction to her clients. But, my son Rex, age 24, who started rappelling when age 5, has only known my methods. We sat to the side and I explained the equipment, rigging and knots that Bailey was using that were different from the set ups I have used. As her clients descended, we enjoyed pleasant conversation with Bailey.
Later, we encountered BJ. He recognized me from a previous year. Again, he (as well as Bailey) was totally professional as well as personable.
I'm not a financially well off man. So, I try to get equipment that meets the safety standard but are less expensive. Since my last encounter with BJ, my praise of ZAC prompted my wife to gift to me a Canyonaero rope and Rope Silo-Hybrid. These items were with me in Water Canyon and recognized by Bailey. I also discussed with BJ the new style helmets.
Bailey let us know of an annual used gear sale. I have signed up for the newletter to watch for the event.
Bottom line, it increased our enjoyment of the canyon to have competent, professional and friendly ZAC representatives interacting with us.
Please give them our best regards,
