Imp Grotto is a very short, but spectacular canyon, with a little bit of everything. The access is quick and easy, providing excellent rewards for minimal effort.
Formed over a fault line, the stream has created a deep and narrow canyon, with some of the most fascinating sculpted bedrock in the area. This makes it committing and very dangerous in higher flows. Avoid this little gem if any rain is forecast.
This canyon is fully described in the Canyoning in NZ guidebook.
