Diedrichs Creek v4a4IV***

10-15m pitches, 1x60m rope reccomended


Public access

Honest uphill walk in, minor downhill bush bash. 600 meters descent over 4 km. Tons of scrambling, jumping and problem solving. Only 5 abseils. Bedrock and boulders, but never feeling too boxed in.

As big as Muriel Creek [next canyon over] but better: with more, cleaner jumps..

Keith Riley

First descent: Keith Riley, Big Al and Greg Lee, 15 April 2022.

    Would have been better to enter the creek at
    Lat: -42.98155 long: 171.05653
    As the first 1.5 km is just creek walking.
    Probably would only give it 1.5- 2 stars, had to add a few bolts and abseil off some trees in some drops as the flow was very high and not passable safely on original bolts.
    Took a lot of creek creek walking, to get to a not very slotted canyon, a few nice jumps and short slides. Approach from walking track was very steep and scrubby, we slid down muddy steep slopes most of the way.
    Took 3 hours from car to turn off point on walking track, then 45 ish mins to scrub slide down to canyon, 35m rap into creek.
