Canyoneering is a sport that has been growing in popularity in recent years thanks in part to its intriguing mix of climbing, hiking and exploration. In a nutshell, canyoneering sends us down into the depths of a narrow slot canyon looking for a way out. It has caught on in the canyon-rich places like Utah or the ALps, and now there is a group of outdoor enthusiasts bringing the sport to Vancouver.
The video below is a trailer for a film called Down the Line and it follows a couple of canyoneers as they go out looking for a first descent in the Squamish mountains. If the full film is as beautiful as this teaser video, it looks like we’ll be in for quite a treat when the full film becomes available. It looks spectacular.

Beautiful video! I've been to Vancouver several times but I didn't know they had canyons like that.
Gorgeous video Kraig! I loved canyoneering when I first tried it last year in Switzerland. Wow! I mentioned your post and this preview in a recent post on my Lady Sherpa page on Wanderlust and Lipstick, I hope this is alright. Safe travels and testing of gear friend!
Of course it is alright Joslin! Glad you enjoyed! Are you headed to OR again in August? We have to catch up!
