Waikato Falls Yeehaw

 A few boys and I went on a little mission last week to the Waikato Falls section of the Tongariro River. We initially planned on Tree Trunk but due to the copious amounts of snow melt it had turned into a roaring monster! The gorge consists of 3 drops, two of which we ran. First a perfect 5 metre+ ramping boof, second a manky pinch into overhanging ledges (pretty shit but definatly goes) To finish it off another picture perfect boof into the bottom pool. 

 View from the lip of the first drop..
 Hamish Tills lookin' good

So nice.

This place is amazing, two clean drops in the picturesque gorge.. If you ever get the chance to see it, take it. The tongariro river is pretty unique!
