Disaster boys in the canyon of doom

Well, we went canyonning near here in Grabenbach. The road on the walk up had a recent memorial for a deceased digger driver (we found the remains of the digger in the canyon later), and a memorial for two dead canyoneers just at the start of the big double waterfall. The tacklesack with my SRT kit went over the edge at the middle pool in the waterfall and sank without trace once the floatation plastic cola bottles had escaped. Then four pitches later we lost the rope in another bottomless pool. Luckily there were no more waterfalls to descend, so we got out happily without having to scale the canyon walls.


Meanwhile, seems to be down, just in time for my article in 2600 magazine to get published. Great timing.

I’ll be driving home tonight over the course of the next two days. I hate driving.
