Nme Needed: Use this section as a very rough guide during the trip planning pro­ cess. The actual time it will take to complete a trip will depend on many factors, none of which can be predicted with any accuracy. I have used my average time as the minimum time listed and added several hours to create a rough range to account for time spent taking pictures, getting lost, rig­ ging anchors and figuring out which leg goes into which strap on your har­ ness. There are absolutely no guarantees that your completion times will fall within the ranges given.

Contingency Anchors: A contingency anchor consists of a load-releasing hitch that allows an individual on rappel to be quickly lowered from above in the event they encounter difficulty. The use of this technique is essential when rappel­ ling in a waterfall or when swift water conditions are present. There are several methods of constructing a load-releasing hitch. One option is through the use of a munter hitch on a carabiner secured with a safety knot (of­ ten a mule knot or two half hitches).

GLO VES A pair of gloves is a good idea for rappelling, particularly on the longer drops. They reduce friction on the hands and make the speed of the rappel easier to control. There are a wide range of gloves available on the market, from specialized rappelling gloves to inexpensive work or gardening gloves-the primary feature to look for is that the palms and fingers are made from a durable material that provides a secure grip even when wet. HARNESS Climbing harnesses come in a wide range of styles and almost any will work well in a canyoneering context.
