I have been canyoneering for 35 years, mostly non technical. I used to be a rock climber - leading 5.10 in the pre sport climbing days.
ART of Canyoneering and RAT Level I from Rich Carlson
All personal gear required plus 120, 200, and 300 foot Imlay static ropes.
In the last few years I have done canyons in Zion (Engelstead, Mystery, Pine, Das Boot, Keyhole), LA (Lower Eaton, Great Falls of the Fox), North Wash (Slideanide, Shillelagh, Miss Piggy, Hogwarts, Merry Piglet), Arizone (Christopher Creek, Parker, Salame Jug), Ouray CO (Portland, Anglel, Lower Oak, Deadwood), Death Valley (two first descents in the Tuchi Mountains), California (Seven Tea Cups, Log Ride, Rattlesnake), and many other non technical canyons.
My favorite part of the world is the southern Utah / northern Arizona. I typically spend 1-2 weeks each year exploring canyon country with friends.
