(Swim at base) The track involves scrambling over increasingly large boulders and is graded as moderately difficult. The dramatic escarpment walls will leave you in awe of Mother Nature. The plunge pool is very deep and at times shockingly cold! However there is a white sandy beach close by which gets a good dose of sunshine making it a slightly more comfortable swimming experience!Session with She Explores Adventure
