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

Some nice streamway and traversing, before we found a climb up into the Smithy. Secondly, ventured upstream from the Maypole at top of Piccadilly. This ends at a showery waterfall.

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.

“This is quite uncivilised,” Jean-Luc text while I, showered, suited and drinking my second cup of tea, felt very civilised. “I propose that you, as a better and much more attractive caver, replace me as president.” I paraphrase slightly, but after the effort that had been put into convincing me to cave in the first place, “I propose sleeping for much longer” was as good a justification as any for a vote of no confidence. The trip had been planned like... read more
