Ryde Falls v3a2II*

Highest drop 25m

Public access

4hrs

A longish walk to a short canyon; but an ideal spot to practice multi-pitch canyoning before venturing into longer canyons.

Little Deep Creek v4a2II

Public access

4hrs

A few pitches to 40m or so, with a few wee slides and contrived jumps..  Not very continuous, lots of boulder scrambling. Not really worth repeating.

You can take a look at the original topo notes for Little Deep Creek if you’re keen.

White Creek v4a2II*

Highest drop 50m

Public access

4hrs

Nice easy half-day canyon trip. Fairly open, granite waterfalls. Low volume, so not many pools. Highlights are a nice 50m waterfall and a jump into the Buller river to finish!

First descent: Benoit Gourgues, Richard Bramley, 11 Jun 17.  Thanks to Richard for the CanyonTopo

St Ronans Well v2a3I*

Highest drop 7m

Private land, permission required

1hr30

A very short canyoning trip. It’s very enclosed and scenic, which makes it worthwhile. Medium volume, with short rappels and downclimbs. Easily repeatable in a day.
