This six-week course includes weekly lectures and two field sessions (you may choose any two days of the listed field sessions, preferably two different weekends). The lectures will provide an overview of canyoneering, introduce canyon-specific topics and techniques, and prepare students for the class field sessions. An optional, late-summer outing will be offered to course graduates.
The class will focus on local canyoneering in the Pacific NW, but we will touch on some aspects specific to the sandstone canyons of the Colorado Plateau.
The time commitment is moderate.
