Enjoy the Exertion of Scrambling, Climbing & Hiking!

Requiring more stamina than our 1/2 Day Trips, our “advanced” loops are still suitable for people of all skill levels who are used to activity and will enjoy the exertion of scrambling, climbing, and hiking as well as the rope work of canyoneering.

You will spend a full day in the North Wash Area doing a myriad of different canyons, from "slot-focused" to "rappel-focused".


10 Hours

Cancellation Policy

Because a reservation guarantees space on a trip, we sometimes have to turn others away for those same dates. Thus, cancellations must be made at least two weeks prior to the trip dates in order to receive a full refund of the reservation deposit. Any cancellations made after the two-week cut off and up to 72 hours before the trip will forfeit the $20 per person deposit. To cover our costs, we must charge the full trip amount for any cancellations made less-than 72 hours before the trip.

We will refund your entire trip amount if we must make a cancellation due to adverse weather. Please be aware that weather cancellations are made only by our guides, based on how climbing and canyoneering conditions are affected.
