We explored up a side creek, finding a tunnel and short section of canyon, before being stopped by a couple of small waterfalls

Our exit creek had a short but poor section of canyon. Rich bridging to stay dry

Rich looking back down into the creek we had climbed out of.

Unfortunately our "ridge" turned out to be more of an isolated outcrop, and we were forced to abseil to get back to the main ridge! From there it was a long walk back to the car at Mt Wilson, finishing in the dark
