de Havilland drop v4a2II

Highest drop around 40m

Public access


About 11 pitches to 40m in a V profile stream. Great views across the valley, but it certainly isn’t a canyon that is worth the walk-in (or heli-drop)

First descent: Alex Petherick, Dave Lundin, Gareth Riches, Lee Den Haan, Patrick Timm, Rachel Jones, Ross Fraser as part of a Wanaka Search and Rescue Exercise, 4 November 2023.

The SAREX was in search of a De Havilland Dragonfly aircraft, which went missing in 1962.. Read all about the mystery and the SAREX in the Otago Post article!
