Canyon Rigging

Canyoning Rigging

If you’ve completed Self Rescue 1 and Self Rescue 2 and are keen to lead your own canyon trips, this is the course for you. Our instructors are keen canyoners with years of canyon guiding experience under their belts, and they love sharing their knowledge and expertise.

I cant believe I have been taking myself and others out without being on top of this stuff.  You don’t know how much you don’t know til you start learning.  Kelly, Canyoning Course 2015

I feel like I have a sound understanding of principles rather than just rote learning techniques, so can problem-solve in unfamiliar situations. [I came away feeling that] I have a good base to start exploring simple canyons and building experience from there. Would highly recommend this course to others. Sophie, Canyoning Course 2017
