After over a year of saying I was gonna explore this drain I finally did it.

The group consisted of 5 of us including Afromunch from the forums. Getting in the entrance was a bit of a tight squeeze as the ice had frozen the gates partially closed and we had to slide in on the ice at the bottom of them. The first kilometer and a half or so were mostly uneventful until one of the guys we were going with forgot he had to call in for work. He ended up running ahead a few hundred meters to a manhole where he could get a bar or two of reception.

After looking over a map it turns out we made it about 3/4 of the way through before we agreed it would be best to turn back. Overall this was the best location I have explored. It blows everything else right out of the park. The sheer size of the pipe in picture 1 is unbelievable and the picture doesn't do the location justice.

Here's the link for the pictures: https://imgur.com/a/2AzUb

How far exactly did you make it?

If you made it to where the tube begins to do a bunch of small slides and narrow significantly, then you pretty much made it to the end. If you turned back at the spot where it's fairly flooded out, then you were about 90% of the way there.

After the grill with the ladder but before the grill with the ledge, the tunnel was still rather large so I think there was a little while left still.

I would love to start exploring sewers, I think I'd get a huge kick out of walking for hours down tubes in the ground. However I know literally nothing about it, if anybody's willing, I'd love to accompany them sometime!

That'd be awesome! Last Ontario drain meet I can recall was way back in 2013 when a few of us biked through gargantua. It was an absolute blast and I'd definitely be up for something similar in 2018
