Highest drop 95m (60+35 pitches)

Big, exposed waterfalls in the upper section, with a relentless narrow slot canyon below. Lots of delicate logjams!

A short relaxed trip, getting in at the happy place. Canyon is in good condition, lots of false floors and log jams at the anchors (as already stated), all pools are shallow, all anchors including the dyneema cord are still in place and in good condition, a few of the mallions could do with replacing soon. Water level indicator now looks different as the logs have shifted

“We did Mayor Mayhem yesterday all the way from the top. It took us 10hrs car to car. The anchorpoints on the upper part are in quite good condition – we had to replace one since there was rockfall and they were damaged. In the lower part there was huge landslide recently and most of the anchorpoints are damaged / gone. We reboilt three of them, and used coupe of logs to rapel down. The water in the lower part is quite muddy, it needs some proper rain so the dirt is flashed away. It is doable for now, but I recomend you take the power drill and couple of anchorpoints.”
