Down the Nave, up to Top Waterfall, returned up Maypole inlet. Enjoyable, splashy trip in the streamway. The waterfall had a hell of a lot of force behind it, thanks to the heavy rain at the weekend. There was a ladder visible behind the water, leading to the top. We decided not to investigate as there appeared to be a reasonably high chance of drowning. Wayne was a very helpful leader, falling neck deep into all the pots so that... read more

A trip of 3 chapters. Chapter 1: Liv learning the route down to the confluence. Fairly straightforward and successful.

With a number of... read more

Photo trip mainly. Me and Matt went for a jolly over some spicy traverses, exploring weird bits on the survey that noone goes to, around and above Bhowani junction and the top of Chasm Passage. Met back up with Gary and Ade and went for more adventures into the unknown. Many round trips were almost completed, but we ended up having to join up the rest of the loops by going around the other way, thanks to some committing climbs.
