 A slightly longer approach to a long, varied and low-flow canyon with scenic views towards Mt Aspiring. Highlights are the enchained potholes with technical jumping.

This canyon is fully described in the Canyoning in NZ guidebook.

Guidebook update

There has been a large landslide from the TR in the “very narrow section”. It is relatively stable and passable, but requires care.

    found navigation after leaving the track to the canyon entrance tricky and ended up entering the canyon higher then the normal get in.

    the anchor at the the R3 abseil was damaged and due to our drill not playing the game it is a marginal (at best) anchor that needs to be repaired, next group will need a full bolting kit.

    • Date: 21/2/21
    • Water level: very low
    • Anchor conditions: next group needs to do repair/replacement
    • Group size: 4
    • Time: approach/descent/return (eg: 1hr/4hrs/3mins): glacier burn track start/finish 8hrs
