Rocky & Twister with the kids

Post by Mooey » 29 May 2018, 14:38

Great fun a couple of weeks ago but water was super-cold!

We tried to find the climb/walk out but after reaching the ridge, we couldn't be certain of the route and with kids in tow, darkness not that far away, we took the prudent decision to descend and reverse the canyon. Not easy to plunge back into that black water again for any of us....

Nice stuff. Although you're making me feel like a terrible dad. I really need to get the kids through more canyons!

very cool video.
I wouldn't be comfortable to let kids do the jump at 1:10... seems way too easy to misjudge.

Yeah that was the sketchiest but these kids probably have better coordination that the adults (and took it seriously too).

That's the best canyon for newbies and kids Mooney... Actually I still love it after years of canyoning. Where did you get to in the climb out? Did you get up the rock face to the top? The is a spot near the top before the rock face where the track looks like it goes right and alot of people walk that way but the track actually goes left, except the right path is probably more worn but it doesn't go anywhere. Anyway.. Great to see the kids getting out and about. Ours love it too
