Canyoneering checklist

The Canyoneering Checklist is a comprehensive list of items and activities to help ensure a safe and successful canyoneering experience. It covers everything from packing the right equipment and supplies to learning about route conditions and hazards. It also provides guidance for setting up rappels and anchors and for safely navigating through a canyon system. The checklist also covers topics such as communication, navigation, water and nutrition, and emergency preparedness.
