Description:
Myself and my co-leader Andrew Walker will be conducting single pitch abseil training in the morning, then have lunch, then go to River Caves canyon. We may go to Deep Pass canyon instead of abseiling training. For safety reasons, It is weather dependant.

On Sunday the 17th July we will be doing River Caves. Meeting point at Bell railway station at 8am. Both canyons are medium/easy to for bush walkers.

This trip replaces my last week trip.

In Deep Pass, you will be walking on artistically hanging timber logs, above water, with safe permanant hand lines. So, it gives you amazing feeling like walking on top of water. It is the only one. As usually, it offers a lot of fun and beautiful scenery for photos.

The River Caves is a short but spectacular canyon in the upper reaches of Budgary Creek. Take camera with you..

From Bell, it is about 40 minutes of bumpy dirt road driving. People with 4wd’s, or high clearance Awd’s will be given preference. So, anyone can catch a train to Bell, then get in a pre-arranged 4wd car.

If catching train, please make sure to stay in the last 2 carriage, and also you must remind to the train driver to stop at Bell.

The essential items to bring are: a harness, helmet, descender, gloves for the abseiling, strong backpack, food, 2 litter of water, head torch, decent hiking shoes, spare dry shoes, extra sock and pants. Cold weather clothing and waterproof jacket & pants in case of unexpected showers.

You might be walking in cold water up to knee high, for short distances, n River Cave. In my previous trip, 3rd July, with some snow, 4 people in my trip liked to walk bare feet in cold water, in Acoustic canyon.

To obtain the essential equipment for this trip if you don’t own any, please log into SUBW's website, and go to "walks programme", then, sign on to the trip, namely "Gear Night Thursday 5-6pm”, and write to the gear officer what gear you want.

Andrew and myself own several abseiling gear sets. Let us know if you need our gears.

A car pool will be organised, and , please, contribute money to the owner/driver.

Your name n telephone will be listed for the purpose of organising car pool. Any objection please let me know. People with cars who are willing to take others will be given preference to join the trip.

More details after signing up.
