American Canyoneering Academy

Our 1st "Wet" Canyon. We are so excited to progress to Wet Canyon because now we have the exposure to an added "stress" factor for an already stressful, adrenaline filled experience. Zion has over 40 canyons but Pine Creek is the introductory "Wet" canyon. Thanks to "Zion Canyoneering Rendezvous" hosted by Darkhorse Leadership to make experienced canyoneers available to introduce newer canyoneers to the sport and progress safely through the marvels of nature.

"Canyoneering":  The addictive, adrenaline filled sport of exploring insanely beautiful and technical slot canyons while using mixed methods such as; Route finding, Rappelling, Downclimbing, Swimming, Rock Climbing, Constructing, Engineering, Teamwork, Sheer Grit, And yes, Sometimes tears. NOT recommended for the faint of heart.

Rock Climbing Resource

As we traveled through the country, we realized how much we loved to hike. We've met some like-minded individuals who are involved in other fun outdoor activities such as rock climbing and canyoneering. Last year we met a great group, the  "Arizona Mountaineering Club".   AMC is one of, if not the best, rock climbing organizations in the country where you can learn proper techniques to climb safely. While in Zion National Park we discovered "Canyoneering". We took a guided tour with "Zion Adventures". Our guide Jess Kavanagh took us to two fun canyons. As we finished the first Canyon Barbara was eager to do the second and a passion for exploring Canyons was born so much so that we dedicated a page just for canyoneering.
