CANYONS

La organización del RIC2021.CAT quiere facilitar a todo los participantes la posibilidad de realizar descenso de cañones de todo tipo, independientemente del numero de dias que esten con nosotros. Por este motivo no solo proponemos los más cercanos al campamento base (perimetro de 1 hora en coche) sino que ademas añadimos dos zonas, un poco más alejadas, que van a permitir aumentar el catalogo de cañones disponibles, aumentando el número de descensos extraordinarios. De esta manera todos aquellos que esten con nosotros los 10 días de duración del encuentro tienen asegurado, si lo desean, actividad non stop de alto nivel.

Las zonas son las siguientes:

ZONA 1: Campamento Base, Sant Joan de les Abadesses. Pulsa aquí para más información.

ZONA 2: Canigó. Pulsa aquí para más información.

ZONA 3: Ariège, Pulsa aquí para más información.

Each canyon proposed for RIC2021.CAT has been checked by the organization.

However, as canyons are subject to rises in the river level, landslides, stones or trees falling, and many other types of deterioration, the organization team cannot assure safety with respect to access, equipment or belaying. For this reason, each participant is responsible for checking the access points, the situation as he/she progresses along the canyon and every individual anchor point.

Each participant must, therefore, be fully equipped with all the necessary kit (sufficient anchors) and be prepared to renounce in case of even the slightest doubt.

The organization team of RIC2021.CAT will no way be responsible for the safety in the canyons.

All teams must respect weather conditions or the level of the river flow. Each participant will take personal responsibility and responsibility for the team he/she participates in.

These canyons are only for independent (”autonomous”) canyoners with good technical knowledge and physical condition (NOT for beginners).

Sufficient food and water supplies enough ropes (3x the highest abseiling length) Complete first aid material, personal material, and emergency bolding/equipment material must be part of one’s personal equipment whenever one enters a canyon.

All information is valid only for the same day, or the half-day in some canyons.

Any canyoning entry and descent is entirely under the responsibility of the teams and individuals participating in the RIC2021.CAT.

Canyoning can only be carried out with suitable personal equipment, in particular, all the climbing equipment needed for the specific canyon, technical knowledge to enable the descent within the canyon in complete safety, as well as checking conditions (weather, risk of water level rise, the physical condition of the participants, etc.).
