Eagle’s Nest v4a3V***

Highest drop 35m  (2x 60m ropes needed, due lack of anchors in one place, requiring a 50m rappel. )

Public access

14hrs

A stunning, steep and slotted canyon. It starts high up Mt Earnslaw and continues without pause all the way down to the valley. 700m of descent and over 40 rappels. A real classic, although also quite a big day!
