Which fall is Kiwi Pot?
hard to describe but all the drops are named on the Rainchaser video here.
Named after a visiting KIwi paddler nearly died in it. Blue and unconcious when it released him !.
Why No platform.
Well the committment is half the challenge and attraction. To overcome the fear knowing the consequences.
It may be very hard to protect but not impossible and anyone of sufficient ability to try the gorge should really have enough background knowledge to arrange protection and rescue.
I always said I wanted some protection then got carried away on the day and just went for it.
