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)
