Canyon Adventure Half-Day


  • A shorter version of our popular Canyon Adventure Day, this trip takes you into a true super-slot canyon, via rappelling, hiking, and down-climbing, and still makes time for a great hike in the afternoon.
  • - No experience required
    - Age 5 or older recommended
  • Descent of a canyon that includes, but is not limited to:

    - 10- to 25-minute hike w/ 200-foot elevation gain
    - Downclimbing narrow, twisted, super-tight slots
    - Up to 3 rappels, 20 to 50 feet in length
    - Possible wading in canyon pools
  • Designed for individuals and small groups who are looking for a fun and adventurous introduction to technical canyoneering. Generally, the day is more fast-paced than a Family Adventure Day with an opportunity to gather with other individuals seeking the same.

    You will learn and apply:

    - Knots, ropes & anchors
    - Belay & safety systems
    - Rappelling
