The previous day, many of us had been climbing at Mt Piddington. With showers forecast for the Sunday - we thought it would be nice to do these two nice canyons in the Wollangambe Wilderness.

I was concentrating on shooting video on this trip.

We all had a great weekend - but it was very sad for me on Sunday evening when I heard that a friend, Andrew McAuley (canyoner, climber, mountaineer, mountain biker and sea kayaker) had been lost at sea very close to finishing his sea kayaking trip from Tasmania to New Zealand.
