On Sunday, May 25th, the Titan surface dig finally connected to the top of Titan shaft.

Congratulations to the digging team for their 3 and a half years of toil, and connecting the biggest shaft in the UK to the surface.

excellent news. well done all. amy ideas when trips will be allowed?
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

No idea, but I'll post as soon as I know - I think there may be quite a bit of work left yet as apparantly there's quite a lot of unstable blocks at the top of the shaft, and something will have to be rigged to avoid it.

Round trip via JH is going to be a hard classic.

about time! good effort all involved. What is the total depth from the top of the dig to the bottom of Titan? About 180-190 metres?

Now, there's a question - and I've got no idea - anyone with a Peak survey know the altitude of the base of Titan?

Good effort all round - 3 and half years solid - every weekend. Now theres dedication for you.  8)

 I suspect there will be a flood of people wanting to have a shuffty now.

Saw Moose and robbie at the weekend - it was funny - moose seemed quite forlorn (not quite the right word) but basically 3 years hard work has come to an end and its like oh well what next  :| . We had the same feeling after we dug through the snakes pj's in bagshawe.

Robbie on the otherhand was like a terrier straining at the leash  :twisted:  - I think he cant wait to get stuck into the passages beyond.  :D

Well done everyone
