    Went through 12 March 2017. All bolts in place.
    Special place!

    Awesome canyon! Someone’s put new anchors on all 4 drops (all 1 bolt with ring, 1 bolt backup), which makes it an easy trip 🙂

    decided to take a peek while the neighborhood last week. the tourist track was impassable due to windfall. it was cold and we weren’t very enthusiastic about pushing through.

    i hope the “nearest big tree” survived. might want to bring your bolting kit…

    According to Philip Beech, from a descent in early Jan 2013;

    “Carews water falls and slides are spectacular r1 missing a nut last rap missing nut and hanger. The nearest big tree required 120 m of rope.”
