Highest drop 75m
This trip has it all. A staunch multi-sport approach. Back-to-back high waterfalls in Wainotinoti. And finally, the jewel in the crown – jumps and whitewater problem solving in the slotted Big Wainihinihi. A big day out, but well worth it. Ask not why, ask Wainotinoti (‘the water that squeezes tighter and tighter’).
First descents: Wainihinihi – Justin Venable, Phil Palzer, Richard Bramley, Dec 2018. Wainotinoti + Wainihinihi – Chris Whitehorse, Mark Parfitt, Richard Bramley, March 2019
