What Is Canyoneering

There is a lot of discussion on whether or not canyoneering is a hike or an adventure sport. My opinion - “Who cares. Looks like fun.” This is a website with lots of info:

“Canyoneering or as it is called by other names throughout the world "Canyoning , Kloofing, Gorge Walking, River Tracing and Stream or River Trekking," refers to walking, hiking, scrambling, climbing, stemming, jumping, rappelling, and/or swimming through tight, narrow, and often times deep slot canyons. In the United States, Canyoneering is often thought of as canyons being somewhat dry - very rarely any flowing water with only standing pools.”
