We went into Bell Creek by the small tributary - Belfry Canyon

This section of Bell Creek is very spectacular. The canyon is deep, dark and sustained - perhaps only matched by the lower constriction of Dumbano Canyon in quality. Photography is particularly tricky because the ambient light levels are very low and the best bits of the canyon are along the long, deep, very cold pools where photography is very challenging.

We went out by going upstream into Clatterteeth Canyon and then climbing out via Joes Canyon. On the way up Clatterteeth we met another party coming down. They asked us what we had been doing - and we told them - we'd been down Bell Ck and where going out via Joes Canyon. This puzzled them a bit - they thought they where in Bell Ck!!! Ooops - more careless navigation.

Above - just before we climb out of Joes Canyon - we get a drink from this nice runnel in the creek.

The next day - Chuin Nee, Enmoore and myself visted Bowens Creek Canyon with Col and Rob.
