The first NZ Canyoning festival went off last weekend, run by Daniel Clearwater and the New Zealand Canyoning Association team. FMC was pleased to be along with Erik Bradshaw and Peter Wilson representing. Safety is a focus, but so is exploration and fun in this growing sport. Congratulations to all involved.
