COVID has presented many challenges in 2020. Challenge accepted for this 9-day Level 1 and Level 2 training program in Monterrey Mexico. Many restrictions were in place so location options were limited, but we still managed to cover all topics for this group of aspiring canyon guides from Mexico and the United States.

My thanks to Shane Wallace and Tomas Hernandez for their assistance.

An unplanned bonus for the students came on the last day when they were presented with the opportunity to conduct a real rescue of a group who found themselves stranded in the same canyon where we were practicing.
