Ep. 519: The Joys of Canyoneering Revisited - Tom Jones
After over 20 years as a technical rock climber and a terrible back injury, Tom Jones accidentally discovered the strange and intriguing sport of canyoneering.
What is it like to rappel down into a deep sandstone slot and to wander where few have ever gone before? The magical lighting, otherworldly formations, and total lack of access to the outside world, canyoneering is a sport few ever experience and even fewer get to know it as well as Tom.
