Pinned kayak in Tongariro along lower Waipakihi run

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.

Topo and rope removed from the river on Saturday 15 September. No more hazard!
