Episode 2: Upper Whitcombe River - New Zealand
Here is the second installement of the Worthy Series, and this time it is the Upper Whitcombe River. This is probably the most reliable run on the coast, with it being one of the biggest drainages. You need a little bit of extra water to paddle it from Wilkinson Hut as an overnight trip. But even if things are low you can always paddle it from Prices Flat through one of the steepest most runnable gorges on the coast. I was lucky enough to get to run this twice this season but still havent had a trip quite like when Barny found a bees nest in the out-house!
