Max drop approx 26m
Steep stream with numerous medium length abseils, quite slotty and scenic. One of the classics of the Kauaeranga valley, followed by heaps of jumping and swimming in the main Kauaeranga gorge. A great and varied day out.

About 15 meters before arriving at the Hydro Camp (there’s a huge DOC sign saying “HYDRO CAMP”), there is a junction with very large track markers.
Take the left hand ‘flood route’ which takes you to the foot bridge over the stream. Enter here.
