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!

    Team of four did Eagles Nest yesterday. A long canyoning day, 13 hours and a half. The canyon is worth visiting in my opinion better then The General and Major. It is just the long approach, that kills the wish to do it again. We bolted R10 and R34 and installed missing plate on R40. All the other anchors are in good conditions, next party should bring new webbing to replace old ones on the trees.
