Waterfall Rappelling and Cascading
Waterfall rappelling, also known as cascading takes the activity of rappelling and applies the technique to a wet environment specifically a waterfall. When rappelling waterfalls participants may rappel through a waterfall or along side a waterfall.
Normally the place where the rappel happens is determined by various factors including access, anchors, rock structure, and waterfall volume flowing over the falls.
Canyoneering is a multidisciplined sport which includes many activities to assist participants in descending down a waterway. Canyoneers use rappelling, bouldering, swimming, rock hopping and various other techniques to navigate the waterways. In wet canyons waterfall rappelling or cascading is part of the trip while dry canyons simply use rappelling.
