Video: What is Canyoneering?

One outdoor sport that is often referenced, but not always clearly defined or explained, is canyoneering. Essentially, this activity involves rappelling down into a slot canyon and either hiking or climbing your way back out. In this video, brought to us by our friends at REI, we learn more about the sport, not to mention the skills and equipment needed to take part in it. The clip starts the REI Trailheads, who are a group of brand ambassadors who are usually a lot of fun to watch on their adventures. They don’t disappoint here either.
