We went in off the Mt Hay Rd. It did not take us long to get to the cliffs above the creek

A short section of pleasant going took us to the abseil into the canyon section

Above - Madlen in the canyon - you can see a hole in the foreground - she did not fall into that one - but she did fall into a closer one that you cannot see. Luckily she was OK

This visit to the canyon we exited via Alpheus Canyon. This involved some rock climbing - and it was an interesting route out. Thanks to our guide Nic who showed us the way and led all the climbing.
