A group of friends traveled to Arizona to tackle Kokopelli, a technical canyoning route. Here’s what they found.

“If you want to go canyoning, don’t take me with you. I don’t help I’m always filming and generally trying to stay alive.” This is an avid hiker Jerry Arizona‘s foreword to his latest canyoning Sleight of hand.

Either go with experienced climbers or with guides, Jerry adds—just adventure at your own risk.
