G.O. 077 - Mr. Imlay Canyon Gear, Tom Jones

Tom Jones has left a large imprint on canyoneering in the Western U.S. He is the founder of Imlay Canyon Gear, a supplier of canyoneering specialty equipment and the author of the Zion Canyoneering Guidebook. Tom and Jason chatted one morning at Imlay HQ about his climbing history, his past with Black Diamond, the realities of guiding, and the repercussions of a broken back.

Another season of the podcast comes to a close. Before our hiatus begins, enjoy three stories from previous guests.

  • Reflections on traveling through Kathmandu during an historic earthquake.

  • A tale of boredom trapped in a Canadian snowstorm.

  • And an account of an overstuffed pack, duct tape, and life lessons on the West Rim Trail.

See you in September.

G.O. 058 – The Monroys

G.O. 058 - The Monroy Canyon Family

It’s the classic story where a country girl meets a city boy, they get married, start a family, and start rappelling down waterfalls around the world. Tale as old as time? Maybe not. Danielle and Brian Monroy discovered the adventure of canyoneering after a failed family backpacking trip when their children were on the cusp of adulthood. They now travel the globe exploring dry and water-filled gorges while giving back to their canyon community through leadership and stewardship. Jason met them at their home to drink lemonade, discuss the impact of canyons on their life, and reveal the reasons for Danielle’s disdain for blue webbing.
