I saw in the old south island guide book (egar) that the ashburton has a gorge that drops at 20m/km avrage, and is steeper in sections.
It's not a well known run, so I was has anybody done it, or know of anybody that has done it?
I'm gessing that it would be better known if it was a feasable proposition.
let us know canty boaters.
Hope I havent blown the lid on anybodys secret hair run:-)
