Done in 2015 by the French “Aotearoa Expedition” Apparently it was reasonably short, but pretty good. No other info… Fixed wing access to the Airstrip and a hut nearby… who is going to check it out again and get a topo and some photos??
Apparently its been checked out by locals, who found nothing of interest. No idea how high they started though. No photos available.
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…
Apparently explored by locals, who reckon there were no features of interest. No idea how high they got in.
Short scramble and wade, worth a wee look if you are in the area with a little spare time.
A great scramble and swim through an impressive gorge, just below SH6.
One of the highest flow canyons in the Haast pass area. Steep, rough, technical, dangerous and beautiful.
Plenty of variety: high jumps, low technical jumps, perfect slides, back to back absiels and beautiful narrows.
10m (30m rope)
Main river gorge, with extremely high water levels and numerous huge syphons. Only in condition at the end of a long dry summer.
Wilderness adventure canyon, medium gradient, lots of fun scrambling and down climbing. Normally done with a base camp in the Lower Landsborough Valley.
