What You'll Get
Modern life generally contains little adventure, except for infrequent weekend nature hikes or brief sojourns to the temple of doom. Learn some skills that lead to thrills with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an introduction to canyoneering course from Utah High Adventure (a $45 value). The Canyoneering 101 class is held at the Holladay City Hall building in Holladay.
Utah High Adventure's two-hour Canyoneering 101 class introduces amateur explorers to the basics of safe canyon navigation. This hybrid sport combines rock climbing, downclimbing, rappelling, swimming, rock yodeling, and more. The first half of the evening's introductory lesson is spent discussing these canyonical components in daring detail, and the second hour covers a hands-on equipment tutorial, introducing rope work, knot techniques, harness how-tos, and more.
Carved by millennia of elemental affection, southern Utah's maze of Navajo sandstone slot canyons brings Christmas-morning caliber joy to even the Grinchiest of canyoneers. With rare recesses to repel down, unusual caverns to clamber through, and whimsical waterfalls to sing in, it is a unique destination for high-adventure seekers. Classes are held 7 p.m.–9 p.m. on Wednesdays.
While today's Groupon is good toward only the introductory class, graduates of the course may apply their $20 class tuition to one of Utah High Adventure's guided one-day trips in the Moab or Zion areas if the trip is taken before the end of the Groupon expiration period.

About Utah High Adventure
When Utah High Adventure's staff members head into work, they don't sip coffee during meetings or ride the elevator up to an office on the ninth floor. Instead, they crash through raging whitewater rapids and rappel down the sides of canyons against a backdrop of sun-soaked red rocks. Years of training and education have earned them the certification and expertise to lead other thrill-seekers on rock climbs, which is more satisfying than scaling the granite backsplash of a neighbor's fancy kitchen. They also guide mountain-bike rides across Utah's rippling alpine trails. During the spring, summer, and fall months, the company hosts weeklong tours into the wild, which include lodging and equipment.
