WHAT IS CANYONEERING

Canyoneering or canyoning is defined as traveling through canyons using a variety of techniques that include hiking, scrambling, stemming,  down-climbing, rappelling, wading and swimming.  The term is most often reserved for technical canyoneering meaning canyons routes that can only be accessed with the use of technical equipment, ropes, harnesses, etc.  Canyoneering routes have specific qualities with one of the most important being commitment.   They are one way slot canyon routes with vertical drops that can not be navigated without ropes and in most cases do not allow for retreat.  They are inaccessible to those without proper equipment, techniques, and specific knowledge of the objective canyon route.
