Canyoning in the Alps Simon Flower


Simon Flower



The Alps rank high among the world’s foremost destinations for canyoning. This book brings together all the most celebrated descents in the Alpine regions of northern Italy and Ticino in Switzerland, including classic limestone canyons and superb granite-gneiss water sculptures. Divided into five areas, the descents described in the guide present a huge variety of terrain, rock and styles of canyoning. Route difficulty is split into seven grades, from easier canyons suited to beginners, through to the strongest aquatic and technical challenges, which demand experienced rope skills, physical fitness and a calm head for high water. The guide provides comprehensive background information on equipment, hazards and techniques, as well as details of Alpine geology and the history of canyon exploration. The book also features additional nearby routes in Austria, Slovenia and in the Valais Alps, as well as the climbing, via ferrata and walking options in the surrounding hills and mountains.

Acerca de Simon Flower

Simon grew up in Sheffield, spending much of his free time mountain biking and climbing in the Peak District. In 1998 he took up caving at Bristol University and was pretty content until discovering canyoning a year later. He was refreshed to discover a serious mountain sport that didn’t take itself, well, too seriously, and seemed to combine everything he loved about the outdoors. Since then he has been canyoning enthusiastically (bordering on obsessively) all over Europe and beyond, taking in a handful of first descents along the way. Caving remains a major interest and over the years he has made significant discoveries both at home and abroad, in the deep systems of alpine Europe and in more exotic karst further afield. Trekking (and an apparent desire for navigational difficulties and personal hardship), has also taken him to some interesting places, including the Tien Shan in China and the Alborz mountains in Iran. Now back in Bristol after several years away, he can often be found running over the moors and ridge-tops of the Mendip Hills, or squeezing through the squalid caves beneath. Either there, or down the pub plotting his next trip…
