Canyoning adventure activity
Rory and his group canyoning and making a very good job of having fun, here are the photos and video from the day. Please visit Wales again and try a new adventure activity with us. It was a pleasure to spend the day in the gorge abseiling, scrambling and leaping into the fresh water pools in the V shaped gorge.
The Birthday boy showed great improvisation by lashing his boot to his foot for the climb out, edited video is on Facebook the original was too funny to show but will send it by email.
The new Oshea Prisma wetsuits worked very well as the adventure wetsuit and made by a local watersports company in North Wales.
What is a Canyon?
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 by people of all ages and skill levels.
Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, semi-static ropes, helmets, wetsuits, and specially designed shoes, packs, and rope bags. While canyoneers 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.
