Reviews

"My partner and I are experienced canyoners. This was a workout though, really tested our skills." - Lauren


"Simply the best canyon I've ever done." - Shawn


"Beautiful scenery and a professional crew offer the perfect amount of instruction. I'do the abseiling and canyoning again. Thanks!" - Cheryl, 3 January 2019

About The Route

  • Soon the first highlight of the canyon is reached: the two main abseils which lead you down a vertical waterfall.
  • The stance between the abseils is a chockstone, wedged in an airy position half way down the waterfall.
  • Another abseil and jump gets us to the end of the canyon.
  • To walk out we sneak up through steep gullies between rock faces and walk along narrow ledges.
  • The excitement continues at an easy 10 meter rock climb 300 meters above the base of the canyon.
  • Easy walking takes us back to the car park.
