Description
This is a wet canyon run late in season hence adequate gear (such as warm woollen thermals under the wetsuit, etc) is required if the weather is on a cool side. There are a few abseils on the way to the canyon which is mostly a downhill walk. One abseil in the canyon through a hole in the rock (good for photos). Canyon is very slippery. Three climbing pitches at the end to exit the canyon. Second pitch being an exposed traverse. You must be at least very proficient with prussiking however some climbing ability is required. Expect 3/4 or full day trip. We'll start from Mt Hay area.
