I would give it another go if a waterfall were involved, for sure.

Okay, so now we’ve got karaoke and canyoning on the to-do list. (I hear in America it’s called canyoneering, and in South Africa it’s kloofing.) Whatever you call it, here are the waterfalls:

Left: one of the descents in our canyon near the New South Wales – Queensland border. Right: canyoning with Afri-canyon in South Africa.

Also, your technique sounded appropriate. One of the skills we train is running back and forward across the cliff face and making great leaps, trying to cover as much ground as we can, in case we have any obstacles to cross on race day.
