Intrepid Adventure Sports jump-starts adrenaline-pumping pursuits with its introduction-to-canyoneering workshop, held in a scenic mountain-park setting. Led by ACA-certified instructor Steve Morga, the three-hour workshop endows canyoneers with the skills necessary to safely overcome rumbling waterfalls, distantly spaced boulders, and infuriatingly expressionless rock faces. The preparatory course covers basics such as the ACA canyon rating system and proper gear selection, then progresses to hands-on skills, such as on-rope maneuvers and anchor and rigging usage. Using skills garnered from the three-hour session, patrons can begin their rappelling adventures, tackling extraordinary mountain paths and adding excitement to the ascension of flights of stairs.
