Friction Factory Canyon v4a2III*

Highest drop 43m

Public access


Low volume canyon with beautiful and large rappels close to Wellington. As with others in the valley this canyon finishes with a walk down the West Akatarawa River where there are a number of jumps and swims.

Due to its low volume this canyon is best done early in the season or in the days following rainfall.

First descent: Fergus Bramley, Thomas Kay 11/03/18
