    The Utah National Parks Council is putting on a Climbing Instructor Course in St. George beginning this week and still have some available slots open. This course will train you to be a Level II Instructor, which is required to take scouts on any rappelling, climbing, or canyoneering activities. The cost is only $150 which is a fraction of what it usually costs to get this training. If you are interested you can contact Jeff Peterson at for more information.

    There is no guarantee taking this class will make you a level I instructor, much less a level 2 instructor. Despite climbing for 20 years, I think it was a couple of years from the time I took the first class until they actually let me be a level 2 instructor. And I'm still not qualified in the BSA's eyes to take scouts down the Subway.

    I'm not saying don't take this class. I'm saying realize this program is a major commitment and certainly not worth it just to take scouts on a single trip.
