Abseil with Ease
Just past the Whangatirenga campsite up the Kauaeranga Valley is Edwards Lookout, a perfect spot for learning to abseil. Don't be deterred by the 1 hour return on the sign, its 15 minutes to the top where you'll be greeted with superb views of the Kauaeranga Valley. There are two sets of bolts at the top, the first is for true beginners and has an easy angle and is a total of 15m. The second is a step up and has a committing start and is overhung most of the descent. Take a 25m rope and a camera.
