Description

Butterbox canyon is a canyon for those looking for a bit more of an edge to their adventures! This canyon has it all – 7 challenging abseils, rock jumps from up to 8m, rock climbing and spectacular uninterrupted views on the exit trail. You don’t need experience for this one, however you do need a high degree of physical fitness.

This is a massive day out – don’t expect to get home early.

Mount Hay has been a beacon for the adventurous since the earliest days of white settlement. Its 945m basalt-capped dome summit is a distinctive landmark when you gaze westward from Sydney to the Blue Mountains. The very first European expedition into the mountains in 1789 had Mount Hay as its goal, but it failed like so many others due to the ultra-rugged terrain. But today, far more of an adventure than the ascent of Mount Hay is the descent into the legendary canyon on its flanks. Butterbox Canyon is one of the great adventure challenges of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.

A grand and spectacular chasm, the canyon boasts a succession of  awesome abseils and water jumps, stunning scenery across the wilderness of the Grose Valley and an absolutely adrenalin-pumping short rock climb out on an exposed sandstone cliff high above the valley floor.

Butterbox’s most famous abseils are two 25m plunges into a deep, dark slot, with the second of the abseils from a chock stone wedged between the canyon’s walls. The water jumps are up to 8m high.

The hike out is long and hard. Make no mistake, this canyon requires a high degree of fitness and is a very long day, but boy, is it worth it

Butterbox Canyon is one of the great adventure challenges of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. A grand and spectacular chasm, the canyon boasts a succession of awesome abseils and water jumps. The highlight of the canyon is two ~20 meter abseils into the deepest, darkest part of the slot canyon. The second abseil is from a giant chock-stone wedged between the canyon walls. The water jumps in the canyon are optional and up to 8m high. The canyon concludes with stunning views of the Grose Valley and an adrenalin-pumping, short rock climb on an exposed sandstone cliff high above the valley floor. Make no mistake, this canyon requires a high degree of fitness and is a long day, but boy, is it worth it.
