Product Information

Description

Most canyoneers enter the sport with little—if any—training or experience in the methods needed for safe, enjoyable excursions down America’s technical canyons. This book equips all levels of canyoneers with the technical skills needed to enjoy a clean canyoneering experience and to avoid dangerous mistakes.

In Canyoneering, ACA-certified canyoneering instructor David Black covers all the basics, introducing readers to the hazards and risks of the sport, the highly-specialized gear, belaying, anchors and anchor systems, and ascending and rappelling. More advanced information addresses pothole escapes, methods for navigating wet canyons, and canyon rescue—all the skills required to gain mastery of canyoneering style and technique.
