Today a Topolino kayak was pinned in the Tongariro about three rapids above the Access 14 holding pond. It's just right of centre on the upstream side of a boulder, but below water level (30 cumics). A yellow throw rope was attached and tied to a tree (river right) in order to keep the kayak in place until it can be extracted later this week at low flow.
