From AUD $1,500.00
  • Duration: 6 Days (approx.)
  • Product code: canyoncourse

 During this course you'll cover the essential roping and anchor skills you need to keep (or get!) yourself out of trouble in Blue Mountains canyons.  The first four days you'll be on the cliff looking at things like ascending a rope, improvising descenders and back-up systems for abseiling. You'll also be learning advanced rope skills like how to set top belays, rescues and hauls, so you can lead groups of less experienced people into canyons.

The final 2 days are where it all comes together in the canyons, putting your new skills into practice negotiating tricky obstacles, assessing anchors and learning how to back-up and test anchors that leave a little to be desired. 

We can also point you towards other resources to work on your navigation, remote area first aid and weather interpretation - other essential skills for canyon leaders.

The course runs for a minimum of three participants over a number of dates to give you plenty of time for practice between sessions and prepare you for your own adventures.

All equipment including helmets, harnesses, wetsuits, backpacks, dry bags and ropes is provided.
