Itinerary description

Rappelling alongside waterfalls, downclimbing and scrambling across rocks will all be part of the adventure. Corbett Creek is suited to focused individuals who are looking to take on a greater challenge in a canyon environment; suited for those that have developed their confidence and skills in intermediate canyons. A special descent amongst pristine scenery and thrilling rappels. The approach to the canyon follows a trail that is both steep and sunny, which is the reason we set off so early. The hike takes approximately 1.5-2 hours, requiring an excellent level of fitness from all participants.
