Agility Creek is a steep, vertical alpine descent. As it is accessed off the Mingha track makes this a classic Arthur’s Pass canyon. The canyon features a series of beautiful pitches with enclosed walls, amazing pools and smooth, solid bedrock. Well worth the walk.
Use the canyon topo as a guide. Access into the Agility Creek canyon follows the rim most of the way. Let the bush and terrain guide you on the best route once you start sidling. The route does not involve bush bashing.
First descent, James Abbot, Nola Collie, Grant Prattley March 2020.
