Canyon Experience :

Great trip today, low flow so did the sliding 35m abseil a few times. Bolts everywhere you need them

Canyon Experience :

Great option in very high water and back up when everything else is too high. Which is the only time I’ve descended it… With all the steel cables everywhere it feels more like a via ferrata than a canyon. But there are some and relatively easy white water features to manage, odd abseil, jump and slides if the water is low enough. I’d definitely recommend taking a pulley which is suitable for metal cables (rope pulleys will get destroyed on cables), it makes the trip more fun.

The flow was too strong to cross around A1-A2 so we opted to start the canyon river right, as we were unsure if the cables were damaged and couldn’t check properly.
