Tigersnake

Technical Grade: Medium
Fitness Grade: Medium
Time: 7:30am - 5:00pm (Approx)
Prior Experience: Preferred

This is our Intermediate Canyon through the cooler months (May – September). Abseiling experience is preferred, but a keen sense of adventure is all you require to see this fantastic canyon!

The upper catchment for this canyon has long ago eroded in to the Wolgan Valley- The water which formed it no longer flows down Tigersnake Canyon. This expedition takes place to the North of Katoomba, where the canyons are narrower and the landscape is a sea of amazing rock pagoda formations, in the Gardens Of Stone National Park.

This trip features four exciting and ‘unique’ abseils up to 25m. The highlight is the final abseil through a hole in the ground which takes us into a deep, dark slot. The canyon in this final section is simply spectacular!

It is a canyon that is not only physically challenging, but offers some great bushwalking in an area not often seen by visitors to the Blue Mountains!
