Highlights are the enchained potholes with technical jumping. A slightly longer approach to a long, varied and low-flow canyon with scenic views towards Mt Aspiring.

Spray Creek v5a3IV*

100m (2x70m)

The drawcard is two 100m+ waterfall sequences in a row. It has a good amount of water and gradient, and some great waterfalls.

The General v5a3VI****

One of the most committing, sustained and narrow canyons in NZ.  44 pitches, super solid dark schist, deep, narrow, sustained. Don’t forget the “Slot of Doom”, with a handline to access 3 pitches (one including a deviation) on a 45m drop. If it had jumps it might be a 5 star canyon…

Very long, steep, committing mountain stream with some nice narrows. A significant undertaking.

Deep Creek v1a1I

Short scramble and wade, worth a wee look if you are in the area with a little spare time.
