Phoenix, AZ, October 04, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Although canyoneering is not new, it has been growing in popularity in the past few years.
“Canyoneering is like the ultimate obstacle course for hikers,” says Bruce Leadbetter, owner of Phoenix-based 360 Adventures, a guide service and travel expert for people who like to climb, ride, hike and explore. “Arizona is like no other area for canyoneering because of our amazing geography. Many areas are out of reach for the average hiker but our company holds more permits for canyoneering locations in the southwest than any other company.”
“Anyone who is relatively fit and likes to hike and push themselves can do canyoneering—provided they have the right equipment and instruction,” Leadbetter explains. “Using ropes is a teachable skill. It’s important to have an experienced guide and good teacher so you learn the correct methods for technical climbs.
“Your canyoneering trip can include smooth, weathered rocks; steep cliffs; dramatic slot canyons; or trickling streams,” says Leadbetter. “We take the worry and work out of finding the right adventure for you and planning every detail for you and your group. All you have to do is show up and have fun!”
Leadbetter, who has been in the outdoor industry since he was 14, started the company in 1992 after graduation from Arizona State University. He and his wife/partner Tina Behrens are passionate about sharing the joy of discovery with all of their guests.
“We put together trips for people from all over the world who want to experience Arizona,” Leadbetter says. “The groups include families, friends, work associates for team building, singles and couples.”
