Really lovely walk-almost too pretty! :) and i even got a slight tan-in february-in the dales! crazyness. Walked to wretched rabbit, persuaded my dad to go fetch my bag from it, walked up to top sink, then all the way down to the resurgence with lots of stops to climb about/admire the prettyness :) and back for a cuppa!

Sunday February 10th 2008 Bull Pot of the Witches Members: Andrew Gilmartin,  Lauren Ellis

Lauren wrote...

Had a little potter around, not too sure where we went or even if it was the way we had intended, but it was quite fun anyway. The only bit of faff was not knowing the code to get in the hut when everyone else was out for a walk!

Lauren wrote...

We didn't really have any trouble with navigation at all, it all kind of just fell into place nicely! We had a really good system going on tho, Simon with the description and the main decision making, then me with the maps and telling Simon when he's wrong :P To be fair, Simon led this trip really well. And I'm very proud of us all for doing it and not getting lost! It was very tiring! Didn't need any ropes like the... read more

We went in wretched rabbit and down spiral staircase route, which is mega pretty, to the main drain where we decided to go to easter grotto for some more prettyness, via a nasty flat out crawl and squeeze but totally worth it! :) then we looped back round and headed to stop pot, and then out of wretched rabbit. So a nice figure of 8 trip, about 5 hours in total plus a little bit more for me going in... read more

Sunday January 20th 2008 Stump Cross Caverns Members: Andrew Vick,  Chuck Holder,  Imogen Shepherd,  Kevin Francis,  Laz Abbott,  Nicola Gover,  Richard Gover

Nicola wrote...

Level 3 scummyness due to kev and chuck repeatedly farting and causing cave evacuations :s

Kevin wrote...

I think you will find the person who caused us to evacuate from the final part of the cave was actually Laz! But great fun being allowed to roam free in a show cave. Meeting the owner was very cool too, looking forward to going back!

Laz wrote...

I'm sure mine was just an "audible alert" rather than some real "bad air" like Kevin's!! :p Was good fun, and especially good that you can be sitting down with a cup of tea within about 10 s of leaving the cave (as long as you run and there isn't a queue!). First time I've ever seen a double-glazed door on a cave entrance! 8)

Kevin wrote...

Doesn't White Scar have a double glazed door leading to Battlefield Chamber? Tea and food reasonably priced etc...

Imogen wrote...

Excellent fun! I liked that no one took us round it so we could be really silly. I disliked Kevins contributions to the trip :P Jacket potato, Licorice tea, Kevin's chips and Nikki's soup were all yummy.

Chuck wrote...

I would like to point out that although I tried to follow Kevin's lead in the bad air production, I was unable to do so. This may have changed in the car on the way home. :)

Sunday January 6th 2008 Cow Pot to the end of Montague West Members: Gary Douthwaite,  Matt Ewles

Gary wrote...

Finally got round to doing Cow after a failed attempt ages ago. The day started with an interesting route to Ingleton via the A1M Southbound (don't ask), but despite that, and not getting out of bed until half 8, we arrived at Ingleton by 11am! A super efficient trip! We got up to the end of Montague West to see the pritties and back out in about 3 hours! Some interesting rigging at the top of Fall Pot; I thought it... read more

Matt wrote...

Great trip! My third attempt due to first time going the wrong way from the bottom of the entrance, and second time a member of my team developing an injury on the way down the slot at the bottom of the entrance. So I was hoping for third time lucky! The slot down at the bottom of the entrance pitch has a fixed rope in place. It's quite easy to get down, but more challenging to get back... read more
