Canyon Leadership

March 30 - March 31

| $195

Not solely for professional guides; leadership skills are extremely useful for anyone who descends canyons with less experienced partners. This workshop combines technical and experiential learning. Participants will have opportunities to enhance and hone skills, experience personal growth and develop leadership abilities.

Topics covered will include:

  • the importance of both objective (technical) and subjective (human) leadership skills
  • problem-solving and decision-making methodologies, group dynamics and facilitation, situational adaptation of leadership styles
  • hazard identification, risk assessment and management, avoiding heuristic traps in decision-making
  • site management and transition safety systems (moving and stationary sites, low-risk and high-risk), appropriate leader positions for optimal group management
  • advanced sequencing strategies, bump-and-go vs leap-frog
  • contextual selection of appropriate belay systems – top rope, bottom, self-belay, twin rope self-belay, running belay, 2:1 belay
  • static and dynamic courtesy rigging for difficult rappel starts
  • pre-rigging and stacked rappels, single rope and twin rope tandem rappels
  • twin rope, yo-yo, 2:1, and other specialized rigging systems and techniques for efficiently moving a group through challenging terrain
