What you'll do

The first half of the day is abseiling, starting with a 5 metre high cliff and building up to 30 metre high cliffs during the morning. After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon. You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery. The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity. The dedicated team of Hosts behind High and Wild Adventures are myself, Darren, Tim, or Richard. We are a core group of keen outdoor adventurists. We have over a 150 years experience of adventuring here in the Blue Mountains. Our training takes two years, then our staff are mentored to becoming a lead guide. This usually takes a further year to complete. After booking, I will let you know who your certified guide (Host) will be.

Aidan

I am a keen outdoor adventurist - rock climbing, canyoning & bike riding have been my passion for many years. I've also spent 8 years working in Latin America as an Aid Worker. - Darren, co-owner of High and Wild & senior guide, has been climbing for 30 years here in the mountains, if there's anything you want to know about a climb he generally has the answer. - Tim is also an avid climber, he grew up in the mountains exploring the creeks & crags, turning his passion into a job!! - Richard comes from an outward bound back ground. He has worked extensively with youth-at-risk kids.
