I remember ...

It was spring and there was much water, so that I had to beware the whirls, which could stay even under very very little water-jumps. I put a couple of fixed ropes, but canyon wasn't slippery and whirl-pools weren't bad. It was fun!

Photographs in this website show ultralight ropes (6 mm ropes made of high tenacity fibers). Read multimedia book Ultralight ropes canyoning technique to learn how to use them.
