Instructors and guides have different personalities but the one thing they share in common is your safety and iincreasing your knowledge base of the outdoors and adventure making you as knowledgable in whatever course you take as you are willing to assimilate. You will be taken out of your "comfort zone" and introduced to a world that may have long lasting effects on you - Dependig on your attitude, these changes should benefit you more than you can imagine. Along with adventure will come challenges. Indeed, the very purpose of ACAS is to help you find untapped resources within you; to let you discover that you have the ability to do more than you thought you could. From time to time we will post pictures of our trips with students taken by our guides and instructors - if you have any objections to this let us know before your course starts. Also, there is no commercial guiding (climbing) allowed in the Sedona area. Any climbing business that is guiding in Sedona is doing it illegal and subject to fines and imprisonment as per US National Forest regulations and laws.

Note: Contact us by phone no later than 24 hours before your course or guiding date to verify that you are coming or if you have not received an email verification.

Discounts only apply to scheduled courses.

The guide/instructor has the final word on cancelling the session due to unsafe conditions or removing a client/student from the course who is jeopordizing the safety of his/her life, other students or the guides. Clients who do not want to base camp can use the hotels in Hanksville or Ticaboo if requested 14 days prior to course starting date. We concentrate on building competence in techniques essential to self-guided climbing and/or canyoneering. There are no refunds after the course or trip has started after the first days instruction. With all groups, you will be dealing with a wide variety of students, some have more skills than others and the safety of each person in the course is our primary goal. Your patience with other students in the course who might not be at the same physical or skill level must be considered. If you want to go at your own speed, please take a private course. Average size of our courses is four students with six being our maximum with one instructor. Larger groups have two to three instructors per course.


Tipping your instructor/guide is recommended since we do not include a gratuity in the price of our courses. Our instructors work very hard to insure your safety and in providing a fun and quality experience, so please show your appreciation.
