  • rise Ben Deano Carl and Miguel toward the end of the caves At 6am we were all up and getting ready to load up the car By 7 15am we were in the canyon The sun was just starting to rise as we came out from the trees and made our way across the dry section of the canyon We were following a dry river bed which contained boulders ranging in size from a football to a small family car An hour later we were getting out of our dry kit and pulling on our wetsuits and off for our first swim We entered the water from a 7 metre jump in and for the next 4 hours we would be swimming jumping walking and abseiling along Gorg Blau getting ever closer to â Sa Foscaâ which translates into â The Dark Placeâ Deano at the bottom of the first abseil into darkness deep breathes now Surrounded by cliffs of over 100m high and travelling through gaps ranging from 0 5 â 5 metres wide it was hard to see what was happening in the world above us We could occasionally see strips of blue sky and the odd bit of sunlight but being this far down in the shade we could not feel the benefits of the sunâ s rays The water was freezing The water constantly changed from being just a few centimetres deep to several metres deep There was lots of swimming and when things got a little tough weâ d take off our rucksacks and use them as floats All the time following the direction of the water flow and not knowing what was around the corner On average weâ d have the ropes out every few minutes abseiling down drops ranging from 5 â 25 metres Sometimes these abseils would be dry but most of the time youâ d be following the water Not quite aquaseiling but nearly Graeme setting up ropes in Sa Fosca Just before midday we arrived at Sa Fosca After a short break for lunch we made our way to the abseil entry Until then I had envisioned Sa Fosca to be quite dark but would at least have a bit of light coming in through a narrow gap in the roof I was to be wrong Youâ d think that â The Dark Placeâ would have given it away wouldnâ t you Sa Fosca was totally underground As I suffer from claustrophobia this wasnâ t a good place to be heading However we had passed the last â get outâ just over an hour ago and the only way out now was to go through Sa Fosca Over three hours of underground canyoning Deano swimming Getting darker but not into Sa Fosca yet The entry entailed a 20m abseil following a small waterfall After doing this I took myself off into a corner and put myself into a â nice placeâ This was a trick taught to me by a

  • Whilst in Spain earlier this year I met up with Our Boys on the Costa Mark and Daryl Sinclair live in Benelmadena on the Costa del Sol As well as being my cousins they are also into the adrenaline thing Their sports include skateboarding in line skating and body boarding Daryl has also been out exploring the local area with his mates and that is how we ended up in this great place for a bit of canyoning I cannot tell you any more about the location apart from it is fairly close to Benelmadena At the moment it is hardly used and this is what makes it such a great spot On arrival we did a little bit of gorge walking to get to the first water jumps The rocks were smooth and very slippery so I spent most of my time trying to stay upright Our first play area was really cool We had been walking in the sun which was very hot and this first place was in the shade It comprised of an overhang over water and a rope swing The main thing to remember was to let go of the rope before hitting the overhang I forgot about this so took a good knock A lesson quickly learnt After playing here for a short time Daryl led us up to the next section This was a larger pool with rocks on 2 sides and a waterfall flowing into it The idea was to clamber along one of the walls and jump in At this point Rhona decided she was happy to stay in the water and take photos Daryl Mark and I made our way along the rock wall to a jump point Mark and I fancied going a bit further but took Daryl s

  • to cliff jump with Nae Limits Nae Limits are an extremely enthusiastic company They are not happy only to offer the usual range of activities white water rafting canyoning skiing etc but are continually looking for something new to offer They are very keen to promote extreme and adventure sports Not only do they offer a fantastic range of activities but they also provide you with top quality equipment and instruction The general rule with watersports is that you are provided with a wetsuit but need to supply your own footwear Not only did I get a wetsuit that looked like it had just come from the shop but I was also given neoprene socks and booties I was not going to get cold It is little things like this that make a big difference John is one of the owners and the main instructor guide at Nae Limits This guy does not give much away about himself but I later found out that he has competed at international level in white water sports and on the ski slopes Working with John is Biscuit This guy does not have a negative word in his vocabulary He is full of encouragement and enthusiasm and has a wide range of experience within outdoor activities With these two guys on your team you are in very safe hands On the day of the cliff jumping we met up in a carpark near Dunkeld and headed off in convoy to the jump site Once there we were kitted out with wetsuits socks booties buoyancy aids and helmets From here we went down to the river to have a look at what we were about to do Unfortunately it had been raining very heavily at the time so the first job for John and Biscuit was to check the level of the river They decided that we would start off with the waterslide and take it from there The waterslide comprised of a large smooth sloping rock and a tarpaulin The rock was situated on the other side of the narrow river so we waded swam in a line over to it and got ourselves ready The tarp was spread out over the rock and some water was poured over the tarp to give extra slide Each of us had to climb up the slight slope to the top of the slide using a rope Once there we sat down about 4 metres above the water and slid down one at a time At the bottom there was a pool to splash into This was a great way for everyone to get used to the cold water Some of us even had a go at going down head first and diving into the water at the bottom After a few goes on the slide it was time to go and check the jumps out First John and Biscuit had to check that the river was at a safe level Once this was sorted we were

  • carried out by amateurs It is also one of the activities offered by Cornwall Outdoor Adventure Training Sport COAST These guys have been doing coasteering for many years and are anything but amateurs I first heard of coasteering in 1999 I was down in Cornwall looking for something new to do and found an advert in a local Youth Hostel for COAST It detailed the different activities they offered karting golf etc but the coasteering really caught my eye It showed pictures of people jumping into the sea from some fairly high cliffs This looked like an extreme sport I went along with four friends and met one of the guides Phil He told us about what we would expect and did the usual health and safety checks After that we were issued with our kit This comprised a wet suit life jacket and helmet Once dressed we jumped into the vehicles and headed down to our start point Once there we again we went over the safety procedures It was now time to get going We started with a walk swim through a short stretch of sea from a beach to some rocks Once onto the rocks we scrambled around for a bit until we came to our first jump This was not a huge jump about 3 metres high into a big rock pool This was a good opportunity to get some practise jumps in Phil demonstrated how to jump safely Then it was down to us to follow suit After having had several jumps it was time to move on The next stage was to cross a rougher but shorter piece of water With this section we had to watch the waves and enter the water when the waves were just right This is were you need
