All The tragic death of Luca Chiarabini started a discussion on dangerous river crossings. Per AW's comments, I thought it best to start a new thread dedicated to water safety and canyoneering. As more and more canyoneers venture into the Grand Canyon and other places involving swiftly moving rivers and/or deep cold water. A discussion thread where we can exchange advice and ideas on being better prepared when encountering dangerous water conditions makes sense. Please feel free to post experiences, lesson learned and advice.
