Later that afternoon - we explored downstream (and there was a major partial solar eclipse - a total eclipse in Victoria) and camped at the Rocky Creek/Heart Attack junction on a magnificent grassy flat. On the Sunday - we explored Ball Race Canyon (Ted had partly explored this creek before) and exited via a pass directly onto the ridge between Surefire and Heart Attack canyons.
