What are Canyon Leads

All canyon leads are "experienced" canyoneers, see their bio's below.  Please remember they are volunteers acting in a non professional capacity.  They are sharing their personal accumulated experience with the group.  These volunteers may not have any certifications, rescue training or rescue experience.  The canyon leads will use their experience to facilitate the canyon trip but the lead may have no specific special training and there is no guide-client, instructor-client, or teacher-student relationship stated or implied.  All canyon trips at the festival are groups of like minded canyoneers.  These leads are just "experienced" equal members of the like minded group

What are Canyon Ambassadors

Canyon Ambassadors are volunteers who accompany groups descending Ouray area canyons. The canyon ambassador has the responsibility to provide familiarity with the approach, descent, and egress from the canyon.

They are a agument to other sources of canyon bata.  Canyon Ambassadors are not leads, guides, or gurus. 

Trip logistics must be worked out via email communication and verified at the social meetings before each trip. Groups should be limited to 6 canyoneers plus the ambassador.
