Summer 2024 PNW Canyoning Course Outline:

The Wild Sky Introduction to PNW Canyoneering Course spans four days, covering essential topics such as risk-management, meteorology, materials and equipment, knots, rigging, rappelling, canyon progression, and effective teamwork strategies. Participants will learn the fundamental knots and gain hands-on experience in rigging static and releasable anchor systems. Rappelling techniques and safety backup systems will be thoroughly addressed. The course emphasizes the value of teamwork and the concept of followership. Wild Sky Guides aims to produce safe and  knowledgeable team-members who  know how to best help their canyoning team progress through Pacific Northwest Canyons.

This course is designed as an introduction to swiftwater canyoneering. The goal is to provide students with a strong foundation of skills and create excellent canyon habits with an emphasis on communication, teamwork and moving slowly.

Participants can expect 4 days of learning, challenge and fun! By the end of the 4 days, students should be safe and active participants in appropriately rated canyons.

Are you ready to take your canyoning adventures to the next level? Our comprehensive canyoning training program is designed to equip you with the essential skills and knowledge needed to explore canyons safely, responsibly, and with confidence. With a combination of online courses, hands-on training at the crag, and immersive experiences in the canyon, our program offers a holistic approach to canyoneering education.

This specialized course stands apart as a one-of-a-kind opportunity, drawing upon the expertise of the American Canoe Association (ACA) curriculum and ICA canyon whitewater protocols and systems to deliver  a professional quality swiftwater rescue course that is tailored explicitly to the challenges of canyoning.

Over the course of three days, participants will delve into a comprehensive curriculum covering essential techniques, hazard assessment, and emergency response strategies.

During two challenging days of canyoning, Wild Sky instructors will evaluate participants skillset and help them adapt their skills to the lush and challenging canyons of the Pacific Northwest. 

From mastering new rigging techniques to adapting leadership skills to swiftwater scenarios, this course will help you  develop the skillset necessary to take on PNW objectives.
