In the wee hours of Monday morning the Canyon Collective website/ community launched. The website which includes crowd sourced beta and a forum based community is founded by Dan Ransom, implemented by Nick Woolley (backcountrypost.com) and backed by Imlay canyon gear. The site is just getting off the ground but already looks pretty impressive. Will be interesting to see how it evolves.
From the Canyon Collective Mission Statement (full text here):
The Canyon Collective is a collaborative effort of the canyoneering community to build the first ever crowd-sourced canyon database. Our mission is to share our canyon stoke by creating a platform to share beta, trip reports, photos, videos, gear reviews, and more. The site is completely free, powered by canyoneers, for canyoneers.
