Lagoon Saddle Canyon v4a2III*

Highest drop 47m

Public access


This canyon is a rewarding day out with some great abseils in a straightforward multi-pitch canyon. The canyon anchors are bolts with a few naturally rigged. The upper canyon starts with two abseils back to back. There are plenty of escapes all the way down. The highlight is the lower canyon with a spectacular 47m start.

First descent by Grant Prattley, Nola Collie and James Abbott 2018.

    Great trip out. Lead a larger group with a little experience that wanted a little bit of a step up from the easier canyons in the Canterbury region.
    Very warm canyon on a nice day as its North facing the whole time. Would recommend as an early or late season canyon if you get a warm day.
    Big pools at the bottom of the major rappels and decent bolting made for a stressless and enjoyable day out for everyone.
