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.
Kanangra Main is my photography nemesis. When I last did Kanangra Main way back in 2008 with Greg and Paul I somehow managed to format my SD drive after a few too many Coopers around the camp fire and lost all my shots and so was keen to do it again. As Anton, Bec, Mike and I are due to do a Mountaineering Course in mid-January, this seemed like a good way to do some hill climbing in preparation.
We decided to head up on Boxing Day arvo, so everything was a rush - I couldn't find my Kanangra map so had to print one out, didn't manage to get food prepared so a roast chicken from Coles was the best I could manage ...
Finally we departed at around 5:00pm and as we expected the Pizza place in Hartley to be closed, Mike and Bec bought some hideous potato scallops from the the Mt York servo - and what do you know? The Pizza place was open after all. So we had Pizza - how could you not?
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.
