I'm back around Sydney and I'm eager to do new canyons.

The plan is to do Upper Bowens South branch (we could also have a look upstream at corkscrew) and Hobnail Canyon from the top. It means that we will have to go up the ridge twice. They are on Bell line of road not far from Mt Wilson and two cars are better.

We will have at least 3 abseils, up to 20m, a few cold swims and some nice sections of canyon. You need to have abseiling and bushwalking experience and be reasonably fit.

You need a wet suit and your own abseiling gear or borrow it from the club, harness, descender, helmet. I will bring a rope.

I wont be coming from Sydney but I could pick you up and drop you off from Bell Station sure or Katoomba maybe, not sure yet. It would be nice to start before 8.30 am.

If you have questions let me know by email only.
