Abseiling in Fossil Canyon with WIA
Wow it is almost 4 weeks since we did this activity. How time flies. We travelled in cars to Okau which is about 45 minutes north of New Plymouth.
After being kitted out in wetsuits, boots and helmets we made our way to the top of the waterfall we were to abseil down. Several of us could not resist a quick dip and slide down the rocks at the head of the waterfall. I opted to do the supposed easier of the two abseils. On reaching the bottom I dont think there was much difference between the two routes but it did help to get us all to the bottom quicker by having two ropes operating. Much fun was had by all frolicking in the water at the bottom of the waterfall.
We then walked down through the very picturesque waterway for quite a distance before having to negotiate a climb through another small creek back to where we had left our cars.
