Details

This is the local field trip for those completing the Pikes Peak Group Intro to Technical Canyoneering classroom session only.  We will hike to a wall in Red Rock Canyon Open Space and setup a rappel station.  We will then work as a team on safelyrappelling from that station.  We will use the latest canyon descending tools and block off, pass knots, self rescue, etc.  Our focus is on evaluation of everyone's terrain/route selection, scrambling and stemming skills, and endurance.  Further details will be provided in the class.
