G'day all,

Bron and I have decided to explore Whirlpool Canyon this weekend. It's one of the least visited of the Wollangambe canyons involving a reasonably long day with a lot more walking than most canyons around there (including a lot of ups and downs).

The canyon itself is meant to be quite nice, but it also means we get to visit a section of the upper Wollangambe Canyon on the way out, so two canyons for the price of one.

This trip is not suitable for beginners. You need to have a reasonable amount of canyoning under your belt and good fitness. There will also be a fair bit of swimming involved. You'll also need to arrange your own gear. We intend to play around with some ghosting / retrievable anchor techniques that we picked up in the US, so being comfortable with interesting anchors and single rope abseiling is a must.
