Yileen Canyon

19th April 2003

Trip Notes

Yileen Canyon is fairly short both for the canyon and the walk in and out, so it's a fairly easy day. There are 3 abseils, the first can be jumped, the second is fairly easy with the rope anchored from a tree a fair way back from the edge, and the third is about 45m as you exit the canyon with a great view into the Grose Valley. The canyon itself while short is fairly impressive I think.
