Hi All,

It’s peak Canyoning season!

Max and I will be running a 3 day camping/canyoning weekend down at the South Coast.

We’ll be doing some fairly wet canyons in the region and you’ll need to be proficient at swimming in deep cold water for at least 50 metres with a backpack, abseiling, have previous canyoning experience and be fit to do the long walk in’s and steep walk out carrying heavy packs.

You will also need to bring along the following essential personal items.
• Grippy rubber shoes – such as Dunlop volleys
• Woollen socks and thermals (no cotton items as these will not insulate you from the cold)
• Light rain jacket (even if not raining)
• Harness, and safety line, descender, helmet, canyon pack, drybag, headtorch, and of course full steamer wetsuit.
• Spare pair of shorts to be worn over the wetsuit for protection.
• Small first aid kit.
• Spare change of dry clothes to be left at the car.
• Sun protection
• Headtorch
• Petrol money for your driver.
• Camping gear and food and water for dinner, breakfast and 2 lunches.

The Club can provide you Harness and safety line, rap rack, descender, helmet, canyon pack, dry bag, head torch and wetsuit should you require them.
