out an email on the Monday regarding some of his recent trips, anyway a few emails later and a canyoning trip to Hole in the Wall
was formed which morphed into a trip to Galah Canyon following a report from Fat Canyoners which showed that water levels are pretty good even after heavy rain.
We followed the general directions on Tom Brennan's site and heading down a faint side track that looked like the right one - but alas we dropped in too early, so found a nice gum to abseil off. As it turns out if we only headed a 100m or so further we would've been bang on the money.
We got to the end of the canyon at 16:15 and then proceeded to find the way out. When I first did this canyon way back in '97 we took the first available exit which is a gully/chimney - this time round we followed the guide and walked around to the slab. Even though the slab is a fairly easy climb out, it still needs a strong climber - I wouldn't recommend this to parties without good climbing skills.
We eventually found our way back across the creek and started looking for a way out, given that we missed the original way in we simply clambered up the first set of logs we could find.
After three hours we got back to the cars at 20:00 and then headed directly back to Sydney. A long day.
