This is a random selection of interesting sites with information on topics such as abseiling, techniques, rescues etc. Note that these pages do not teach you how to abseil, how to use the techniques, nor even if the techniques are safe. If you intend to use any of the techniques you should train them in controlled conditions with appropriate safety measures before using them in a canyon. Read the disclaimer
