Experienced canyoneer used fixed handline in middle section as a "controlled slide". He stopped at the end of the rope, then continued to slide the rest of the way. His foot got caught on an un-seen edge twisting it. He was able to continue on, painfully finishing the canyon with the help of his friend. It was later found that his fibula was broken, just above his ankle.
