Deep Creek v1a1I

0m
1hr
Public access

Short scramble and wade, worth a wee look if you are in the area with a little spare time.

Premier Creek v2a2III

25m
6hrs

Long, slippery waterfall tramping trip at the head of the Waiorogomai Valley. Only 4 pitches with lots of river walking in between.

2nd Branch – Tairua River v1a1III

A long bush bash up the second branch of the Tairua river to chase the scratchy information from local rockclimbers of “an impassable gorge with big waterfalls” led to a rather small “gorge” with low flows and only one waterfall. Not worth a repeat visit. However the local rock climbing is meant to be of high quality (including established climbers camp)

Sleeping Dog v4a2I

Public access

Alternative entry to Sleeping God canyon. Has loose rock at the top and is not recommended.

Greyneys Creek v3a2II

20m

Army Creek v3a1II

2-3 significant pitches before it joins with Navy creek.

Johnson Creek v1a3I

Stream walking, with some jump potential if you scramble up the gorge sides.
