Are you interested in getting into technical canyoneering and rappelling? Come on out to the BCH Club meeting on Tuesday evening where I will be giving a talk on technical canyoneering including a demonstration of the rappelling equipment required to access these canyons (I won't actually be rappelling in the restaurant, though). I'll be demonstrating the basics of rappelling, which will include assembling your personal rappelling gear, connecting the ATC/belay or ATS device to the rope, the anchor, and the descent down the rock.
I'll bring in some of my canyoneering gear I use including canyoneering packs, canyoneering footwear, ropes, webbing, harness, etc. I'll also talk a little bit about the canyons in Arizona and Utah and how to go about planning a canyoneering trip.
