Pleasant View Canyon

27-05-2017

Mandy and I

Pleasant View canyon is a canyon which leads a view over the Carne crk which is  pleasant… Actually the views from the end of the fire trail are better as are those from the cliffs above the canyon.

But anyhoo…

The canyon itself has some nice features (Some of the erosion caves are, IMO, on par with those found in Acoustic/Sunnyside canyon) and the tree ferns are awesome, but the canyon sections tend to be short and there is a bit of scrub, stripped bark and dead fall to negotiate.

All in all it’s worth a look if you are in the area doing other stuff

We followed a little gully down through a short canyonette but a 4-5m drop barred our way in this fantastic chamber

Luckily it was easy to slip over the top of the pagodas and scramble down then approach the chamber from below.

With the big wind swept over hangs in the upper cliff and the blanket of ferns commanding my eyes I would have missed this cave altogether if it wasn’t for Mandy disappearing into it

Sure the canyon sections were short but a couple of them gave promise of a deep, narrow passage.

Did I mention tree ferns?

Felt fern covered the walls, leaf litter and bark carpeted the floor.

The dry creek bed followed the big over handing wall around almost 180°
