Our Two Day Basic canyoneering course covers the same material as our One Day Basic course but affords people two days of instruction and supervision with a guide as you lead and navigate multiple technical canyons. On the second day of this course, you will move through a canyon while implementing the knowledge and skills acquired from the first day. A great option for true beginners seeking more instruction and experience. Each separate day is approximately 7-9 hours (this is not an overnight course).
This course is intended for beginners wanting to get into entry level technical canyons in Zion National Park such as Keyhole, Subway, and/or Orderville canyons, or those with a climbing background looking to do intermediate canyons such as Pine Creek, Mystery, Spry, or Behunin canyons. You should expect to be out on the canyoneering course anywhere from 7-8 hours each day. There will be some light hiking (under 1 hour) so wear comfortable hiking shoes. Your guide will provide you with all the needed gear prior to your course. Just remember to bring plenty of water and some snacks or lunch.
