For many this is THE canyon experience of a lifetime. A huge day out in the most famous of all Blue Mountains Canyons.
Our full day expedition will see us descend from Mt Banks into the top of Claustral Brook. After we gear up the fun imediately begins with some water jumps, obstacles and swims.
When we reach the first abseil, we begin our descent in to the world-famous Black Hole Of Calcutta- An infamous set of waterfall abseils dropping 45 meters in to near darkness. This constriction is one of the absolute highlights of all Blue Mountain's Canyons!
From here we reach the junction of Ranon Canyon- A 700m long section of vibrant green walls with lots of swims and scrambles. The final length of Ranon Canyon features lots of advanced scrambling on and through slippery surfaces along with several difficult water obstacles.
At the end of our canyon, the difficult walk out begins. We climb up through the Rainbow Ravine, gaining 220m of elevation as we top out on the "Camel's Hump", before descending back in to the top of Claustral Brook for another section of pristine canyon and a few cold swims!
We then come back to where we originally entered the canyon and climb back up to Mt Banks and our vehicle.
The total elevation gain in the afternoon is over 450m, making this exit a 3 hour experience that is not for the unfit!
