Holts Creek v4a4IV**

Highest drop 40m

11-12hrs

Public Access

Holts Creek is a big day in a remote alpine canyon. It is bolted but come with natural anchor rigging materials. The upper canyon starts with pool drop waterfalls. The only escape is a scree mid-canyon before giving way to enclosed steep walls. On the way down make sure to look back up the canyon at the spectacular series of waterfalls.

Recommended for experienced canyoners and strong teams.

First descent: Grant Prattley, James Abbott, Nola Collie March 2017. Photos by Nola and James, Topo by Grant.
