Woo Hoo! 3rd and final EPIC training trip for a private NZ Mountaineering Trip next week and a huge one off my bucket list - I've now completed all the Kanangra Canyons flowing into Kanangra Creek - mind you, I haven't done Kanangra Main via the Slot - does that count? Now I've just got to do all the Canyons flowing into the Kowmung.
Epic! That's what the boys reckon. I thought it was awesome. It has everything you could ask for and more! A demanding and remote adventure with absolutely stunning waterfalls and abseils, pristine creek walking, an optional side trip to Danae Brook, the best walk out ever and a great open fire cook up with a few glasses of plonk on the banks of Kanangra Creek. But seriously very hard - Kanangra Main is a Picnic in comparison.
Awesome!!! Davies Canyon is one of of the best canyons I've done, but really Tuff. It's actually an open gorge rather than a canyon, but boy is it spectacular!
I'd previously written this up in another website which was hacked so hopefully I've remembered it correctly. It's entirely possible that I may have exagerated certain aspects of the trip ;-)
We'd been organising this trip for a while and Stuart had decided to buy a new rope to match his existing rope for the long 50m abseils, what dedication is that? But why did he choose 11mm instead of 9mm? Unlike many other canyons, there really wasn't much info on the internet on Davies apart from what was available on Tom Brennan's Ozultimate site, so it was bound to be an exciting adventure.
