#latergram Ticino canyons have it all: jumps, slides, clear water, sculpted stone, lush vegetation and views for days. Canyoning in Europe has some subtle differences, though. Our guides used different devices and thicker, more dynamic rope than I was used to. By this time in the day we actually understood their quick explanation about “moving the rope.” I had never seen anyone “creep the rope” before; naturally, I cursed my guide savagely the first time it was done to me on rappel.
