Makarora Gorge v4 a5 or a6

Ascended in 2015, by Jasmine Li and Ryoji Onishi (see about them on the Cameron Creek page)

According to Jasmine, not quite as high flow as its neighbouring Cameron Gorge, but still super high flow:

Makarora has not so much waterfall (highest one might be 30m,and only one) with strong/huge flow, 3-4 points impossible for swimming but available for sidewall climbing (no approach or cross river way,need rope.anchor and leading climbing,but maybe okay strong whitewater swimming if canyoning down).

Remember, these are the folks who came here planning to ascend Gloomy Gorge so they know what high water is..

Enjoy the video by Ryoji, and the photos from Jasmine.
