Claustral Canyon (Experienced Only) – this is the stuff of legend!!

Hello Adventurers!

This is the canyon they talk about. The one that gets a 10/10 for quality. The one that is repeatedly tried because its so often failed!

Described as one of the most striking canyons with fantastic water features, stunning flora and a pretty decent effort to get through, its a bucket list must have!!

Suitable for intermediate or experienced canyoners, get ready to push rock and bash bush and get a little bit wet!!!
It will be a long day, you’ll need to be fit and ready for a sun-up till sun-down expedition. It’ll be worth it which is why we keep coming back to it! Bring you spirit for adventure….and your sense of humour!

Spaces limited and I’ll be trying to close this off as soon as I can approve participants. Priority will be given to those who can drive and offer lifts. Passengers, this will be $20 for the driver so please have the appropriate notes handy.
We will try and car pool as much as possible, save unnecessary exhaust fumes.

Information regarding gear, travel arrangements and so on will be sent to successful applicants.
