Parsons Creek v4a2IV**

Highest drop 60m. 3x 60m reccommended

Helicopter approach / 4hr descent / Helicopter return

Public access

Lots of vertical in a sunny northwest-facing canyon. A very short (ie, affordable) helicopter flight from Mt Cook airport gets you to the top, and back across the mighty Tasman River at the end.

The exit series of 7 back-to-back rappels is committing once started, hold and and enjoy the ride.

Thanks to Justin Hall for the topo and image.

First descent: French ‘Aotearoa 15’ Expedition – Jan 2015. Second descent and write-up: 8 February 2023 (Sheree Atkinson, Gabriela Scheufele, Justin Hall).
