I climbed into my first slot canyon a handful of years back, figuring that basically if I knew how to climb and rappel, that canyoneering wouldn’t be much different. We made it through that first canyon, but there were definitely some shenanigans that went down. Since then I’ve taken many opportunities with friends who are very skilled to continue this craft, and the feeling of rappelling off the edge still gets my heart going every time.
