About the Author: Simon Flower grew up in Sheffield, where he spent much of his free time mountain biking and climbing in the Peak District. In 1998 he took up caving at university, before discovering canyoning a year later. Since then he has been canyoning enthusiastically (almost obsessively) all over Europe and beyond, and has claimed a handful of first descents along the way.
