    Did a trip last weekend (9/12/12), we entered the canyon by sidiling around from bushline hut until the bush became thick then dropped down to about 1150m contour and entered the creek there. Encountered lots of debris and another short (5m) pitch that can be avoided on the TR before the topo starts properly.
    Used a kayak throw bag to ‘lasso’ the R8 anchor which worked a treat. Could not find any other options…
    Final pitch was a bit of a vertical bushbash to start with the bottom is not visible from the rigging position so make sure you’ve measured your rope before committing!!
