Canyoning (also known as canyoneering) is the sport of travelling
down canyons using a variety of techniques including walking,
scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, swimming and etc. It
requires navigational skills, rope work, and other skills required
for wilderness travel.
Hiking down a canyon that is non-technical is called canyon hiking
or just plain hiking. The terms Canyoning and Canyoneering refer to
technical descents - those that require either rope work (rappels or
abseils), technical down-climbing, technical jumps or technical
In most parts of the world, canyoning is done in wet, mountain
canyons - those with water flowing in them. In the Malaysia,
descending wet mountain canyons is called canyoning.
Canyons that are good for canyoning are cut into the bedrock stone,
forming narrow slots with drops, beautiful sculptured walls and
spectacular waterfalls. Although many of the best canyons are cut
into limestone, other common rock types include granite and
sandstone. Canyons can be very easy or rather difficult, though
emphasis in the sport is on aesthetics and fun, rather than pure
difficulty. Significant water flow can make canyons very
treacherous, and require special rope work techniques for safe
travel. Canyons that are narrower than six feet (two meters) are
called slot canyons. Canyons that are very narrow, especially those
narrower than humans, require special techniques to climb through
and over, and can be very strenuous.
Canyoning can be dangerous. Quite often, escape out the sides of the
canyon is not possible, and completion of the descent is the only
possibility. Fatalities have occurred as a result of flash floods,
the most infamous of which happened when a group of tourists on a
Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, static ropes, helmets,
wetsuits (not in Malaysia); and specially designed shoes, packs,
rope bags and etc.
Canyoneering involving rappels or technical climbing is commonly
know as, "technical canyoneering." Technical canyoneering can also
involve escaping from large, "potholes" that are too deep to stand
up in and whose walls are too smooth to use to climb out of the
feature. Canyoneers have developed several unique and creative
devices to escape these, "potholes" and, "keeper potholes." These
devices include hooks used for aid climbing attached to long poles
and various techniques involving the throwing of weighted bags
attached to climbing ropes over the lip of the pothole.
