Assessment Canyon B

Field trip: Waterfall Canyoning Course - B

Assessment Canyon B - Rachor Creek: Upper Canyon

Technical canyon skills assessment

  • Basic Canyon
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi

TBD, all day

While instructors will provide ongoing feedback throughout the course, the final day gives students an opportunity to put all that they’ve learned to the test.  A formal assessment by the instructors gives students a clear understanding of what proficiencies they have, as well as specific areas for continued improvement. It's an opportunity to put all of the pieces together and receive specific feedback on your overall proficiency in a canyon environment, and what your next step should be as you progress as a canyoner.  During the in-canyon assessment, your instructors will assess your personal movement in canyon, and will assign you one rappel to rig, manage, and clean independently. Students who would like more practice before doing an in-canyon rigging assessment can choose to postpone their in-canyon rigging assessment and arrange to be assessed on a canyon trip later in the summer.
