Te Punga Ngaro v4a2IV*

2x50m ropes

9hrs (2hrs approach, 6hrs descent, 1hr return)

Public access

Te Punga Ngaro “The Lost Anchor” is an intermediate level canyon with consistent abseils and a slowly building flow as you descend. There’s no swimming, making this a great winter option and some spectacular drops at the end.

First descent: Kieran Chandler and Ryan Malcolm (exact date unknown, circa 2018)

Thanks to James Judd for the Topo and Images.
