Canyoning is a new and fast-growing sport. We offer the excitement of rappelling from heights, the joy of jumping into cool pools of mountain water and the childlike fun of splashing through streams. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends, especially on a hot day.
 

What is canyoning ?
Canyoning (known as canyoneering in the U.S.) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, and/or swimming.

 

Although hiking down a canyon that is non-technical (canyon hiking) is often referred to as canyoneering, the terms canyoning and canyoneering are more often associated with technical descents — those that require rappels (abseils) and ropework, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swims. Canyoning is frequently done in remote and rugged settings and often requires navigational, route-finding and other wilderness travel skills.

Canyons that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. Most canyons are cut into limestone, sandstone, granite or basalt, though other rock types are found. Canyons can be very easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis in the sport is usually on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. A wide variety of canyoning routes are found throughout the world, and canyoning is enjoyed bypeople of all ages and skill levels.

Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, static ropes, helmets, wetsuits, and specially designed shoes, packs, and rope bags. While canyoners have used and adapted climbing, hiking, and river running gear for years, more and more specialized gear is invented and manufactured as canyoning popularity increases.

Why Canyoning?


When asked, canyoners will cite a variety of reasons for being drawn to the sport, but they will always include fun and beauty. Canyoning is definitely fun and will take you to some of the most spectacular places on earth. Other reasons cited will include:

Mental Challenge
Solving the problems dealt byrock and water requires creativity. Overcome these problems with technology and hardware is possible, but it is more challenging and more fun to rely on wits and ingenuity.

Physical Challenge
Canyoning can be physically demanding. A typical day may involve hiking, wading, swimming, rocking climbing and rappelling. Some people challenge themselves to stay dry and attempt to climb around every pool. Others challenge themselves to leave the rope in their pack and attempt to down-climb as many drops as possible.

Serenity
Many are drawn to the canyons in search of peace and tranquility. They tend to move at a slower pace, absorbing the sights and sounds that provide such a welcome contrast to the hustle and bustle of modern city life.

Adrenalin
Some are drawn to the activity for the rush of jumping, sliding and rappelling over waterfalls.

No matter why or how people choose to pursue it, canyoning is addicting and certain to attract enthusiasts in ever-increasing numbers in the years to come.
 

The sport of canyoning

While a canyon refers to an incised, river valley with steep sides, the sport of canyoning tends to focus on those canyons with drops that require ropes, jumps, slides, and swims (‘vertical canyoning’). A leading  recreational canyoner sums it up as follows:

As far as I am concerned, the term ‘canyoning’ refers to travel down any stream byfoot that requires technical equipment and/or ability.

Sure, a 'slot' canyon with 30m walls and only 1m in breadth is a true canyon, but excellent adventures can be had in a steep mountain stream that passes through gorgy sections. They don't have to be steep necessarily, only to have rappels, technical down climbs or technical slides/jumps/swims.

If I have to take rappelling gear and there are places along the way were escape is impossible (due to steep slippery walls on either side) then I'm going canyoning. Floating or swimming through a gorge with tyre tube and/or wetsuit is more 'gorging' or 'tubing', a sport which seem to have a bit more followership in NZ amongst keen tramping types.

Levels of difficulty

Canyoning grading systems tend to consider a variety of factors, recognising each in an overall alpha-numeric grade.

Classification

Graded  1–6, using these factors:

The difficulty of navigation to and from the canyon

The difficulty of selecting rappel rigging points and arranging the rigging

The height, strenuous, and exposure of the rappels

The difficulty of the exit climb out of the canyon

The length of the trip

It’s striking that water difficulties aren’t considered, making the system of little use.
