Sand Anchors

A fairly new invention for canyoneering is the sand anchor – a big piece of cloth that you fill with sand, No Kiddingrappel from, and then pull a cord which dumps all the sand and allows you to re-use the anchor. Near Lake Powell, they can’t use any bolts to set up their rappels. So in this video you can see them pulling down their sand anchors after they rappel.

More of their story here.
