Party - Rik, Rob, Michael, Michael, Dave

We had explored in this area before for new canyons with mixed success. A few years ago, Rik, Rob and Zen had been on a trip and found a nice canyon, new to us. On that trip they were unable to go down it as they did not have ropes. Rik was keen to venture out into the area again so he organised this trip. It was winter and it was cold - but we knew that many canyons in the Blue Mountaisn are fairly dry.

Above - to get to our canyon area - we had to cross through this rugged country

Above - we arrive at the top of the next abseil - and find an old sling. We were rather surprised as the canyon is quite remote

Above - looking down - more impressive canyon!

Above - below the abseil was a long deep looking pool. Rob is a little reluctant to veture through it.

Above - Rik does his best to keep dry
