    Good points on prep and minimizing impact.
    But... Their wierd 2:1 rap method seems to be leaving massive rope grooves (visible at the end of the video)

    I think that is guided groups with a top-belay. Kind of a standard method.

    That canyon gets a LOT of action.

    That makes sense, but there are still ugly grooves there.
