Our canyoning trip included abseiling (rappelling) down waterfalls, both the sides and the middle. It also included the hike up to the waterfalls, and the descent down the river afterwards. The descent included such things as jumping, crawling, sliding, walking, and swimming.
That's it. I'm not sure if that's both waterfalls, but I would say at least the bottom 3/4 of it is the second waterfall. I was shaking by the time I reached the bottom of that one. Once there, I rejoined the rest of the group and we moved on, leaving a few people to finish up and join us. We were guided to our next starting point where we all sat down and ate some tasty sandwiches for lunch. While we ate, our guides prepped the fourth and final abseil. The one in the waterfall.
No joke. Anywho, I once again let the rest of the group jump ahead. This time I was seriously freaking out. I went in some of the waterfall on the previous one, and I did not enjoy it. So this, where the only way to go is down the waterfall, was not looking too appealing. Add to that the rope burn I was getting on my hands, and I was not too confident that I would make it down under any sort of control. Luckily, Cam, one of the guides, realized how panicked I was and offered to lower me down. Yes, yes, yes, please. And no, I was not the only person to choose this option.
I did enjoy the descent, especially since I wasn't in control. Once at the bottom I disconnected and headed along the gorge to the dry waiting point beyond. Once everyone was down and the gear collected, we continued on our way down the river and back to the trail to civilization. I have to say this is the part I enjoyed the most. Wading through the river, jumping off cliffs, crawling in between rocks, yeah, I can totally do that.
