The upper section of Mystery has a variety of short but interesting downclimbs - of which this is one.

Another one down a log

Rachel on about the third "real" abseil

Another dubious looking downclimb...

...followed by yet one more!

The canyon opens out, before reaching this big flat area, which was relatively full for us. Wading the lake ...

... which was caused by this massive landslide

Slabby abseil

We are not the only canyoners!

The canyon narrows up again
