Big Bradley

Prerequisite Knowledge

No prior knowledge is necessary for this course. This course is for beginners interested in learning more about canyoneering and the basic techniques involved.


What to bring

You will want to wear comfortable clothes that you typically wear to hike in and shoes to hike in that protect your feet and drain easily when wet. Basic running or nongortex hiking shoes are fine. We do not recommend any kind of boot. A shoe such as Keen sandals or water type running shoes work best. We will supply you with all the canyoneering gear you need.
