Highest drop 50m
Steep and inescapable after the first drop. Some very beautiful waterfalls, very sheer and steep rock walls and views to Mt Rolleston. Escapable by following the creek to the end..
Note: This canyon is labelled “Upper Twin Ck” on the Topo50 map, but is known as Temple Col Canyon. This is intended to remove any confusion with the Top section of nearby “Twin Ck” canyon (1km south of this canyon).
First descent: Unknown. Explored and documented by Grant Prattley, Nola Collie and James Abbott 2017.
