An easy canyon with a 2 hour walk up to the Pinnacles with only 5 abseils and a great dam that is almost intact. The dam is a danger but stable at present, or so it appears. It shows of the massive effort that was once put in around the area in logging the prized Kauri.
Exit is via the Kauaeranga Gorge v2a3III**
First descent: 28/2/15 Dennis Vshivkov Peter harrison Pete Smith Shanan Fraser.
The region was hit by by storms in 2019: expect bolts might be damaged/unusable.
