    I think in Europe we are more looking the fun the sport and the ego- physical-challange-driven there are just a minority and usually are considered "piteous".

    If I understand the translation, (he) separates fun and the challenge? I agree with abhorring the ego, but to me, the challenge is part of the fun!

    Hey Sardini Bikini! Lumping "ego" with "physical challenge" - how so? Most folks I know doing X and R canyons are attracted by the mental/physical challenge. Ego with some of them for sure, but mostly the betamasters. If you're really curious about motivations, you should ask Ryan! :)

    Anyway, European "Canyoning" is fundamentally different from CP "Canyoneering" The Euro limestone waterparks ARE just a barrel of fun - that's why I go there!
