Best Hikes of SoCal
Interested in learning to Rappel & Canyoneer? Did the movie 127 Hours intrigue you?! This workshop is a very basic introduction to rappelling, safety checks, communication and fireman belaying (bottom belaying). This workshop is in no way a substitute for the full Technical Canyoneering Course. This course will, however, provide you with an introduction to rappelling, safety checks, communication and bottom belays that can make taking the full course more beneficial. (To keep abreast of Canyoneering Courses, Events and Activities, check out the calendar at: http://www.meetup.com/canyoneering) We will spend the whole day rappelling at Stoney Point in Chatsworth. Single strand on 8.3mm and 9.2mm static canyoneering rope! I will also bring a couple of descenders for you to try: Piranas and Figure 8's. That's all we're going to do ... all day. So ... If you don't know how to rappel .. come learn. If you want to try out different descenders and ropes .. come experiment. If you know how to rappel .. come practice. This workshop will last all day .. 7am-3:30pm so bring lunch & water! You will be required to sign a release of liability and assumption of risk. You may participate all day or for a few hours ... it's YOUR day. Gear for this workshop is a climbing harness (I can loan you one), a helmet (climbing, bicycle, kayaking, snow boarding .. any helmet .. but you gotta have one! If you've got nothing, let me know in advance and I'll loan you one.) If you're got a pair of gloves .. mechanics, cycling, weightlifting, garden .. any kind of gloves, your hands will be happier! And feel free to bring any gear you have questions about ... I'm happy to show you how to use your own descender and to answer any/all gear questions. We will be scrambling around a lot as we rappel, scramble back up, rappel, scramble back up, rappel, scramble back up, etc. ....so wear some comfortable shoes with good 'grip' .. trail, running, approach shoes all work well (don't wear rock climbing shoes). Bring sunscreen, maybe a hat, and clothes/layers appropriate for the forecast. This workshop is open to everyone .. so invite your friends, your teenage kids, your spouse to join and sign-up as +1 +2 +3 etc. The cost for this workshop is $40 per person ... AND participants will be given a $40 discount on the tuition of a future 3-day Technical Canyoneering Course ... THAT WOULD MAKE THIS WORKSHOP FREE!!

Great group of people and awesome instructor! You have got to meet Klaus! If you haven't tried this, you're missing out. Klaus is all about safety first, but teaches in a way that makes you count the seconds to rappel and canyoneer! I'd rate this as a 15 out of 10! Can't wait to see what else he's cooking up. Thanks to Jason for his assistance!" -C- (Carmen B 2/2/13) "Best Meetup I've ever been to. What a great group of people .. Klaus encourages us all to support one another and we learned how to care for each others' safety! I look forward to more adventure and instruction! Thanks Klaus, I loved every minute of it." -Lynda- "Had a blast! Met very cool people. Klaus is a great instructor, super supportive and his assistant(s) are knowledgeable and patient! Can't wait to do it again." -Aurora-
