I remember ...

Ease of access, shortness, tightness, waterfalls not so high: these are the features that made Rocca Gelli canyon one of the most frequented in Central Italy. In concrete this means that, on Saturdays and Sundays of spring and rainy seasons it is relatively easy to meet a team or two who descends the canyon.
Of course, in the other days the canyon turns back to be solitary.
