Danae Brook Canyon - March 1973

This was my first canyon. It was organised by Bruce Parr for the Springwood Bushwalking Club.

Party - Bruce Parr, Graant Benett (Benge), Dave Noble.

None of us had been down the canyon before - and we didn't get a real early start. Also - the water in the canyon was high. On one of the last abseils we jammed a rope - and it took a while to pussik up and free. This resultsed in us being benighted in the canyon - at the start of the boulder chute. The next morning we completed the canyon and returned back to Mt Thurat via Thurat Spires. I took a few photos - but water got in the camera.
