Shoulder season? Too wet to climb, no snow to ski? False - it's canyoning season. This will be an exciting beginner friendly trip to explore two of BC's beautiful and seldom visited canyons. We will drive up Chehalis lake to a campground on the lake and then go descend Skwellepil creek. In the evening we will enjoy plenty of merriment as we are car camping and bringing guitar, beer, and grillables. The next day we'll send the nearby Maisal creek and then go for dinner of the all-you-can-eat variety.
Note that given the nature of the activity, the number of participants on this trip is limited. You need to have previously rappelled, scrambled, and jumped into water from up to 3m. General coordination desired. If you have none done none of these, email me separately and depending on the general skill level of the trip, you may still be able to attend. The signup will not necessarily be first-come-first-serve, but will rather be modified to balance out experience.
The required gear is harness, helmet, wetsuit, water booties, rappel device. If you have ropes, particularly static ones, please notify me. A more specific gear list will be emailed out to the participants.
The general idea is that by the end of the trip you will be able to go out and descend some canyons of your own.I can't stress enough that canyoning is pure wholesome type 1 fun. All the time.
