Canyoning in the Blue Mountains with ASM
Abseiling & Empress Canyon
An entry level abseiling and canyoning experience that is an ideal introduction to these amazing adventure sports! The first part of the day is focused on acquiring abseiling skills- we start with several short practice abseils and then move up to some higher challenges- the introductory abseiling session is an exciting adventure in its own right! After lunch we'll test our new skills with a trip through Empress Canyon. The journey takes us deep inside the sandstone cliff, wading, scrambling, swimming and jumping into pools! We will complete our canyon journey with a thrilling waterfall abseil down Empress Falls. From here we hike back to the bus and take in some of the most impressive views to be found anywhere in the Blue Mountains along the way!
