International Canyon Accident Database

Post by T2 » 11 Mar 2019, 12:12

The Coalition of American Canyoneers ( recently created a new, international canyon accident database. It aims to better document and understand the causes of canyon related accidents, so they might be avoided in the future.

I will be adding some of the high-profile Australian incidents from over the years, but if you know of an incident that might be relevant you can easily make your own submissions. In particular, they are seeking detailed narratives, personal analysis and advice from individuals involved in canyon accidents. In addition to an individual’s account, supporting material such as scene pictures, media reports, and diagrams will also be helpful.
