Technical manual canyon N ° 3
This book on the initiative of the two federations, the FFME and the FFS, completed by a DVD devoted to the progression in white water, is addressed to all, from the future curious practitioner of the activity to the experienced canyonist.
This new manual is designed to unite all the actors of the activity around the same passion but especially the same requirement: to make the practice of this discipline even safer.
Each one, according to his technical level, his experience and his expectations will find in this manual a synthesis of equipment techniques, vertical and aquatic progressions, assistance and supervision.
The latest technical manual, 2007 edition
The technique with a simple disengageable with the eight abutment, taught for more than 10 years in our courses has, to date, never posed a problem in our practice, however recent laboratory tests have highlighted limits of use: in the case of a suspended relay (the lower link is not in contact with the rock) and for loads over 100 Kg, the presented key may turn in the big hole of the eight and may affect the walkout. As a result we decide not to use it anymore and we propose the update of this file with several other systems in replacement.
