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.

good shelter on a Friday night.
