After reaching the creek, there is a spot with a small pool and some rocks to suit up if need be.

R1: 40ft drop, good tree about 15ft back.

A fairly lengthy and steep creek walk separates the first rap from the lower technical section.

Lower technical section (R2-R5): There are many anchor options for these lower raps and you may not have an escape route until R4.

At some point you get to a little slide. Be careful in stronger flows because R2 is right after this slide.

R2: 20ft slanted drop after a section of exposed rock.

R3: 25ft vertical drop immediately after R2.

R4: The main falls. 60ft. 150ft rope double stranded around the larger tree RDC was barely enough. There are some other options of anchors too.

R5: Optional 15ft rap just after the big one.


Bushwhack up the hill DCL back to the drop in point and follow the approach bushwhack back to the campsite. Don’t go up the other side of the creek (DCL) all the way because that would lead you to a closed nature restoration area.

Red tape

There are a few turnouts off of the main road that can be used for parking. To avoid being constrained on timing, avoid parking in the park's gated areas, gates will close when the park closes.
