Yup, I think it’s time to finally upgrade the rappel device to the new model. Been rocking the CRITR 1 since it was released, time to move into the 2. I’ve loved using this device a lot. Great speed control for my style of rappelling.
It's insane. I need to stop being a lazy bum and get after it. Pic from a little trip with @fatty_skipper a week ago. . . . #moabing #moab #canyoneering #leprechauncanyon #getoutstayout #andshesdopetoo #skinnycanyons #optoutside #exploremore #naturescape #rocksrock #northwash #hanksville
Brett gears up as we headed back into the canyons over the weekend and getting to shoot some more awesome photos.

Dreaming of the backcountry.
Not all hikes have to be to the top of something in order to enjoy a majestic view. Hikes can be down and through where you instead enjoy the textures of space around you, wonder how it formed, puzzle out the moves to get through technical areas, learn how to side step through sustained narrows.... 🧘‍♂️ @dannyjohnsonll
Into to the abyss. @gloryglock dropping in somewhere in the North Wash, #Utah . Our #adventure #photographer @chimesofreedom squeezed , climbed, rapped and worked through slot canyons for days getting shots for @adventurepromagazine with @corchkillamanillachinchilla and friends. Check our bio🤟🏼
There's always something special about an arch in the red rocks, especially when you're able to repel right through it #utahisrad . . . . #canyoneering #arches #northwash #southernutah #redrocks #getoutside #petzl #repelling #idratherbeinnature #stemming #adventurephotography #utahgram #beutahful #slotcanyons #usucanyoneering
(Cont. from previous post) Even though Diesel & I naturally choose safety, comfort, ease, and warmth over risk, adventure, hard work, and discomfort, the other two in our household DO NOT 😂 🏜 So despite our best efforts, we're constantly being pushed into our fears, away from the safety and shelter we're used to and into the Great Unknown. 🏜 And even though we gripe and groan and complain about being up too early or find ourselves facing what must be certain doom (naturally), we often come out the other side realizing that maybe, just maybe, we've been missing out and selling ourselves short. 🏜 This account will be a record of our adventures, misadventures, missed adventures, fears, triumphs, frustrations, elations, ponderings, and reflections as we learn to embrace our wild sides that surely are simmering just beneath the surface. We can't promise we'll push any boundaries or do things no one has done before, only that we'll keep seeing just how far our limits actually go and what rewards lie just beyond our ever-expanding comfort zones—oh, and if it's even possible to remotely keep up with our naturally adventuresome counterparts 😂. #probablynot #butwelldoourbest 😘✌️🐶 🏜 #reluctantadventurers #agirlandherpup #adventurewut #adventure #itstooscary #slotcanyon #canyons #canyoneering #northwash #utah #utahcanyons #optoutside #getoutside #cantbeattheseviews #shimmy #littlewildhorsecanyon #earnyourview #werk #dieseltheburlydog #dieselthegirlydog #fear #amigonnadie #learningbravery #expandinghorizons #theunknown #whymom #dontmakeme
👋🏻 I'm Melanie, and this is my pup Diesel. In case you're wondering, Diesel and I have become somewhat of adventurers, thanks to my husband Josh 🧗‍♂️ and our other pup Denali 🐶. But neither of us planned on it... 🏜 See, I love sleeping in, watching movies, reading, eating, playing games, shopping, playing tennis 🎾, and occasionally doing other activities as long as they're not too extreme. 🏜 Diesel, though he has a big dog name, is maybe the wimpiest pup ever. He loves being next to me every chance he can get, eating, running sprints for about 3 minutes, chasing squirrels, playing with toys, doing tricks, and going on chill walks. 🏜 But if either of us are given the choice, we prefer being lazy and staying inside. That is, until we didn't... (See next post for the rest of the story!) 🏜 #reluctantadventurers #agirlandherpup #adventurewut #adventure #itstooscary #slotcanyon #canyons #canyoneering #northwash #utah #utahcanyons #optoutside #getoutside #cantbeattheseviews #shimmy #blarneycanyon #earnyourview #werk
We had to take off our harnesses for this part of the canyon...it was a tight squeeze 😅 ... Danny and I and our new roomie Max and his girlfriend Kait all spent this Memorial Day weekend in the Northern Wash of the Red Dessert exploring the canyons. I’m new to canyoneering, so there was definitely some awkward raps that scared me, some challenging down climbing, and more stemming in one day than I thought was possible. ... The beta literally said “don’t be a big ol’fool. If you’re too big go elsewhere”. I didn’t understand what this meant until we got to the section of long sustained narrows where we had to inch along squeezed between the canyon walls one side step at a time. Not for the claustrophobic that’s for sure. ... I love how difficult, challenging, and different the canyons were from anything I’d done before and can’t wait to go again!!! ... Next on the list of gear to acquire...wetsuits for wet canyons and waterfalls. ... As always, know the beta before you go my friends, even if you aren’t leading the group. You always want to be prepared and knowledge of the area is something you should carry 🤓 ... @dannyjohnsonll @there_and_van_again #likeawildernessgirl

Canyoneering: an activity where you trust your life on a pile of rocks to hold you while repelling hundreds of feet #deadmananchor . . . . #utahisrad #northwash #southernutah #redrocks #getoutside #petzl #repelling #idratherbeinnature #stemming #adventurephotography #utahgram #beutahful #slotcanyons #usucanyoneering
A great day this week out shooting photos in the slot canyons. Always enjoy a great group to be hanging with and able to be with @twistedarchproduction shooting for @northwashoutfitters is fantastic.
Had the opportunity to be back in the slot canyons this past week shooting photos for @northwashoutfitters along with @twistedarchproduction. It was a great day after we got in there.
Took a short trip into the bottom side of Leprechaun canyon. We were too tired from the previous day to clamber all the way through. The hike into it was a bit long and quite sandy, but definitely worth it. #canyon #slotcanyon #utah #northwash
trying my luck out at the slots 🎰🏜😉

Sunburns, awkward rappels, and spicy down climbs made for quite the weekend... but nothing compares to that moment when you’re nearly 100 feet off the ground... that’s the reason we do this!
We conquered two canyons on the second day with ten different rappels. I am amazed with the beauty that those small slot canyons hold. It was a fun challenge getting through them. Thanks for having cool uncles @lindseygreaves 💚💛#slotcanyonsofutah #hogwartscanyon #hogsprings #moroccocanyon #northwash #canyoneering
Meg doesn’t think we’ve taken any engagement pictures yet, little does she know.... #northwash #canyoneerig
Epic weekend adventure backpacking and canyoneering in Hog Canyon with great company. Doing something challenging, scary and that gets you out of your comfort zone always makes you come out stronger mentally and physically and makes for a great time. I had a couple moments of panic while stemming through the slots and realizing how long of a drop was under me, sliding vertically down the slot elevator style, or when my hips were briefly stuck while repelling through “the birth canal”. It was fun to figure out the best way to get through each obstacle, which even included cartwheeling over a rock that was waist high because we couldn’t turn our hips to climb over it. 😂 #hogsprings #hogcanyon #northwash #canyoneering

Let's talk about my favorite natural phenomenon! Cryptobiotic soil is a community of living organisms. A single step onto this soil can destroy an entire microhabitat and leads to further wind and water damage of nearby intact crust. YOU'RE NOT SPECIAL, SO STAY ON THE DAMN TRAIL. #beutahful #desertrat #northwash #cryptobioticsoil #optoutside #womenwhohike #wonderfulwildwomen #clymblife #teampixel
Been in between a lot of canyon walls over the last week, and I've loved every second of it! #canyoneering . . . . #slotcanyons #utahisrad #northwash #southernutah #marmut #redrocks #getoutside #idratherbeinnature #stemming #adventurephotography #utahgram #beutahful
One day not enough? Book an overnight trip and watch the stars through our @theoriginalsmittybilt roof top tent! #reinventingadventure
Canyoneering is all about the team! It’s all about the camaraderie, it’s all about the love and passion of being outdoors, accomplishing hard things and seeing wonderful locations. Teamwork in canyons is paramount. Here’s to great teams over the years and great classes we’ve had the pleasure of being with.
Prepping to drop into a canyon under headlamps. Adventure awaits if you are willing to seek it out and then jump.
When it gets hot out ☀️ 💦
Fantastic weekend canyoneering with friends!! We love Utah! 🏜❤✨ • • • • • • • • • • #utah #etsy #sandstone #silversmith #meetthemakers #meetthemaker #utah #canyon #canyoneering #slotcanyons #hiteutah #etsysellersofinstagram #northwash #exploreutah
Get you a pup that loves the outdoors as much as you. 😍 #miniaussie #pups #australianshepherd #dogsthathike #adventurepup #utahisrad #southerutah #desert #northwash
Sometimes squeezing through Slots is as much fun as rappelling. @North Wash. #oscarnbarbara #ozbzfree4life #NorthWash #Canyoneering #DarkhorseLeadership
Sometimes you have to work to get the best views. We had a great time during the North Wash Rendezvous. #ozbzfree4life #oscarnbarbara #canyoneering #gopro #NorthWash #darkhorseleadership #Imlay
Rappelling at night. What a fun way to start the Advanced Canyoneering Course. We camped, then woke up early to tackle canyons.

My favorite - a long weekend in Utah. And Jax had a blast. #desert #canyoneering #carcamping #utah #northwash #puppiesofinstagram #dustpuppy
Headed in to Morocco with the class. These guys did amazing together and made class fun.
Another epic canyon weekend with my sister! @jimena.schultz She did amazing for her first time! #northwash #utahisrad #southernutah #miniaussie #womenwhohike #girlswhocraveadventure #canyonnering #womenwhocanyoneer
The canyon floor is lava. Actually it’s just really cold water and I didn’t want wet feet. 📷: Justin Galloway - - - #slotcanyon #canyoneering #northwash #utahisrad #utahgram #utahlife #adventureisoutthere #thefloorislava #weekendgetaway #weekendwarriors #comeadventurewithme

Some of our most bomber anchors looked the sketchiest. Had a fantastic time #canyoneering in the #northwash of #lakepowell
Morocco today! And the weather is actually decent at least this morning it is. Yesterday we got blasted after lunch with cold and wind. We should do good today.
