This is the main drop on Tree Trunk Falls. The only successful run of the gorge was by an international team last summer during record low flows. Other runs/swims include a guy who swam to the eddy in the upper right hand corner of this photo and was luckily extracted via rope. Everyone else who has entered the canyon has died.
This was the scene at the take-out of Access 14. It's a popular run, and it was nice to hit the run a second time without all of the crowds. It was pretty cool the first time too, since I saw almost all of the kiwi paddlers I knew at one point or another out on the river.
