Titan Streamway Survey Trip - 01/06/2013

Written by RobEavis.

Myself and Henry Rockliff headed down Titan for a short saturday trip, after his Western Highway trip was cancelled as it was just the two of us.

On the way we went up Horne's Gully for a look around. One the way back down one of the dubiously gooey karabinas snapped whilst i was abseiling and i freefell for 4-5m before the traverse line kicked in and slowed my impact with the floor. No harm done and a good leason to be learnt regarding old gear. This had presumably been in there since the original discovery, so 13 years old, and was a steel krab on an alu hanger.

We then headed up to survey in right hand inlet of the Titan Streamway which leads up to Rachel's Belly, as this had never been surveyed before. Totalled 98m of survey to add to the Peak Speedwell system. Whilst up there we pushed a lead at the top, hilticapping through into a small, draughting inlet chamber, but no way on.

By the time we had derigged it was a 7 hour trip, would have been easier to go to Western Highway!
