The second rappel was right after a big pool. At this point we were all still trying to stay clean and dry. Unfortunately Keith face planted in this mucky pool from his rappel perch when Gavin "accidentally" pulled on the anchor.
By this point in the canyon it was really dark, and it only got darker. The canyon was so narrow and deep that it was more like a cave than a canyon.
We teased Keith for falling in the first pool, but by the end we all were waist deep in mucky, stinky pools. Yuck!!!
We did a LOT of this, and variations of this, for hours. Canyoneering is the art of wedging ones body in odd ways between various shapes and widths of rock walls. We have a large collection of rainbow colored bruises and scrapes as a result.
