Danae Brook Canyon v4a2VI***

Post by DavidM » 09 Apr 2019, 22:25

Danae Brook follows a spectacular slot through the Kanangra escarpment. It is the longest of the one-day Kanangra canyons due to the extended boulder field and creek walk at the bottom. Allow 8-12 hours.

It is convenient to leave a car at the Kanangra Walls parking lot. Park/leave the Kanangra Walls road on the Mount Thurat firetrail at 30998 34589. Follow the firetrail north. Turn right/east off the firetrail at 31310 37061. Walk approximately NE to gain the ridge, then aim directly for the Danae Brook creek at about 32792 37757. It is slower to enter the creek earlier. Follow the creek to the first abseil.

Follow the attached abseil quick reference. For R3, the alternate route through "The Car Wash" cave is great fun; splash-proof head torch required.

Gain the confluence of Danae Brook and Kanangra Creek (not always obvious). Walk directly up the opposite/south slope, breaking through the cliffs at about 35432 36453. Pick up the well-worn path on Kilpatrick Causeway/Gangerang to return to Kanangra Walls.
