I said yesterday that I would show you another way to rappel down to the bottom of the canyon. Here it is: upside down!!
The guides attached the clip and the cable to her harness, and instead of having this young woman simply hold on to the cable in a sitting position while being dropped down the canyon, the guides, with her consent, grabbed her feet and wrapped her feet around the cable so that she would be upside down.
They then dropped her, head first, down towards the river at the bottom of the canyon. Talk about a thrill!
The second photo below shows that this young woman did arrive safely at the bottom.
How did I go down, you might wonder? Right side up. It is OK if you call me a sissy, but I will defend my manhood by declaring that I had an excuse, of course. I had my camera with me, and I would not want to risk damaging my camera, right? If I lost or damaged my camera, I would not have been able to take the photos of the next several activities that I will share with you in the days ahead.
