So you have tried one of our Introduction to Canyoneering Trips, learnt some fundamental skills and now want to put them into practise in a more testing environment. Sign up to one of our Intermediate Canyoneering Trips to put those newly acquired skills and that new found confidence to the test. We will hike just little further into the Hajar Mountains to take us to some stunning scenery (and great photo opportunities) and the start of our descents. Once we have fitted all our equipment, re-established our skills set and are ready to go, will be begin descending the dry waterfalls of the canyon/wadi. After the first abseil, there is usually only one way out and thats to continue down using the equipment we have with us. Our highly experienced and UK qualified instructor will guide you through the terrain and back to the vehicles. All the technical equipment is provided, including helmets and harnesses. You will need your usual hiking clothing and footwear (hiking boots are preferable here due to the terrain and the boulder gardens we need to descend), lots of snacks and some lunch (these days are not to be rushed), plenty of water (we recommend at least 3 litres) and a back pack to carry everything in. Remember to fully charge those phones, you are not going to want to miss those essential shots and selfies for your social media.
