Very impressive through trip from Titan to Peak Cavern via the White River Series. Although I had heard quite a lot about it I was still amazed at the engineering work that had taken place to mine a vertical shaft 50m through solid rock and to hit the side passage at the top of Titan main shaft. Our lights didn't do justice to the size of Titan but it was still good fun abseiling into the abyss. From here we headed down into the Speedwell streamway and then onto the White River Series. After looking at the formations we descended down the ventilator and headed out of Peak Cavern.
