Saturday 03/02/07 – Dom Clayton, James Carlisle. After last week’s recce to the end of Wodehouse Way, a return trip was made to dig some of the more promising leads. An hour spent shifting mud and cobbles out of a flat-out crawl below Bat Chamber ended in disappointment when a couple of metres of progress allowed us to see ahead to where the passage became a tight impassable rift. This could possibly be enlarged with a bit of capping, but … Read More

Saturday 17th March – Becka Lawson, Beardy, Dom Clayton, James Carlisle. A return trip was made with mountains of gear to bolt up the aven, survey it, and do some more digging.

Present: Dom Clayton, George North, James Carlisle. (Team Pillock) Finally managed to get another trip in after two abortive attempts in recent weeks (due to higher-than-sensible water levels). The trip also provided a first run out for George’s new drill, which turned out to be very light-weight and easy to use. We rebolted up the climb from Bat Chamber and rigged it for SRT, removing the really dodgy ladder in the process. We then went for a bit of a … Read More
