Canyon Ratings

November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Instructor: Rich Carlson

Among the early accomplishments of the American Canyoneering Association was the development of a canyon rating system. Considering the dynamic nature of canyons, it was not a simple undertaking. The rating system is not perfect, but for anyone who truly understands how it was intended to be used, it is quite sufficient and was designed to evolve over time.

In this workshop we will discuss how the system was developed, why each rating component was included, and how the system should be applied and used. PLUS, insights from Rich’s four decades of canyoneering experience.

LOGIN: The link for this online class will be included in a confirmation email when you purchase your ticket. You can log in via web browser or the Zoom app. Please note, the times are US Mountain Standard Time.

FORMAT: Rich will present fundamental principles in a 15-20 minute monologue, followed by questions from participants with Rich’s replies.
