Finger Neck Rapid

Finger Neck Rapid is directly after the Finger Neck Portage take-out. Most paddlers will usually only attempt this rapid on the 50-Miler, when the portage is not allowed. On other races it cuts out a long section of the river.

Finger Neck consists of a short, steep drop on a bend in the river, with a couple of deceptively strong stoppers to negotiate, making it one of the more challenging rapids on the Duzi River.

Before the floods, it was advisable to keep extreme left to avoid the worst of the stoppers and also some nasty submerged rocks. This may have changed. There was also an option to sneak down the right however the traditional sneak line has changed and not as clear as it used to be.
