Utah's Red Rock Desert, or more specifically the Colorado Plateau, is home to some of the most complex terrain on the planet. It is a virtual labyrinth of arching sandstone domes, steep cliffs and deep twisting canyons plunging into the unknown. Due to this complexity of the landscape, it is no surprise that this part of the lower 48 States was the last to be mapped and today it is still a robust haven for canyon exploration.

We offer canyoneering trips and courses in the heart of canyon country in the Robbers Roost and North Wash areas of southeastern Utah, near the Dirty Devil River just north of Lake Powell.  Years ago, these areas were once common hiding grounds for the likes of Butch Cassidy and his gang and today, near equal opportunities for solitude exist for those intrepid enough. There are a wide diversity of canyon trips possible in the area; from non-technical scenic romps, to multi-day technical affairs- those not for the faint of heart.

Due to the remoteness of the area, all trips we offer are a minimum of three day in length. In the field we can focus on day objectives from a base camp or embark on multi-day affairs. Each trip is private to the individual booking group and custom tailored to meet the desires and ability of the group.
