My two kids (14 and 12) arrived in Blanding somewhat unprepared for what the area holds in store. We stayed at the Stone Lizard and were trying to figure out what to do when I came upon North Wash. We were not quite prepared for canyoneering, but Jared flexed around our schedule and took us out to see Anasazi ruins and petroglyphs along the Comb Ridge near Blanding. He as courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the area and our little posse had a great time. Next time we'll plan better and take on some canyoneering. This whole area was a great surprise to us and a welcome respite from the somewhat crowded national parks scene and Moab. I highly recommend exploring this area and calling North Wash to help you out.

Wow! Jared is an amazing coach. He took concepts that can be intimidating and made them achievable. I gained respect and understanding for the canyons of the area and techniques for navigating them. Thanks!

Went to Blarney Canyon in the North Wash and had a great time. The owner Jared Hillhouse is an excellent guide, host, and he provided equipment that other outfitters do not provide, such as gloves, knee pads and elbow pads, great quality packs and canyoneering equipment. His prices are also more reasonable than most the other outfitters and he gives you more time canyoneering and the confidence to test your potential. You come away feeling much more capable at canyoneering than before and if it is your first trip you will not be disappointed with his trips. I highly recommend his canyoneering trips and training courses.
