    Canyoning in the Pacific Northwest - A Technical Resource by Kevin Clark

    FINALLY! A comprehensive canyoning technical manual in English.

    This is an impressive piece of work. Kevin has done an excellent job of making sense of the huge disparate mess of Canyoning techniques used in both wet and dry canyons in the USA and getting it down on paper in a very readable and understandable form. It is MASSIVE - 340 pages!!! Lots of photos to illustrate all sorts of things.
    The writing style is fabulous. Very non-preachy - aka very non-Tom like. He shows many alternatives and discusses which makes sense when. Many sidebars to explain terms and concepts, and then also to qualify the techniques shown on the previous page. I think this is very important. He does a great job.

    It is a big book. “Letter size” format, 8-1/2” x 11”. 340 pages. PACKED with information.

    Not really for beginners… but excellent for people who are comfortable on ropes to learn stuff. Heck, I’m gonna learn a bunch of stuff when I find a month to work through it and read the whole thing! Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced - there is something for everyone!

    Available at the CanyoneeringUSA Store
