This tunnel has been done to the death. As such, my EXCUSE, is i shot the pics on film and was part of a crew (Snappel, Little Mike, Loops, Sgt Marshall and Shane) who became so enthralled with the (finally very successful) idea of ascending out of the tailrace tunnel into the power station, that most of them (save Shane who dedicated 45 minutes to shooting just the outfall lol) forgot they had cameras. Plus did i say i shot film? :p

Also, Rankine's tailrace sat, bukake-ing water into the Niagara River the entire 10 months i lived in Toronto between 2005 n 2006. Plus, i recall photos of its outfall being posted in the Cave Clans Il-Draino magazine as far back as 1997. They turned the flow off 4 months AFTER i left Canada. It took 3 years for me to get back. Heres a few piccies ;)

After scrabbling over the roof of the beloved concrete behemoth that is the OnPCo power station, you find yourself infront of a Natural Wonder of the World, with a shiny scalp....
