Thursday December 30th 2021 Large Pot -To the Top of Colossus (the chaotic story of when everything goes wrong) Members: Paulina Poterlowicz,  Rosie Marshall

Paulina wrote...

The plan for the day was to spend the night at the NPC, doing large pot on the 30th then jingling on the 31st before coming back down to York for Ambers New Year’s Eve party. Things started going wrong a week before the trip when my mum kindly informed me that I had a dentist appointment on the 30th that I completely forgot about. Well then. I called them to rebook but I only managed to get it moved... read more

Our thwarted escapade in Large Pot began for me at quarter to seven on a dismal morning in Surrey. As I awoke I realised that this was actually later than I would normally get up for a day trip in York – though, admittedly, this wasn’t a day trip. We were going to have a late trip in Large Pot, bed down in the NPC, and have a crack at Jingling the next morning. I had just enough time to eat... read more

The plan for this trip really took shape while celebrating a Christmas meal at the pub when Chris asked if I was still up for caving- er of course. Chris suggested Long Kin East, a great sounding cave but in my least favourite location- the allotments. Looking at the favourable weather it was decided I should suck it up and deal with the hour walk. I managed to recruit a Henry and even Jonathan who we were picking up from... read more

Stunning pitches -- probably a good Sunday trip. No difficult SRT but there's a fair amount of it! Wouldn't recommend it any time soon though, since there's a dead sheep at the bottom of the first pitch series right next to where you land and it smells horrific.

Sunday September 12th 2021 Boundary Pot - County Pot Members: Adrian Turner,  Jacob Podesta,  Paulina Poterlowicz,  Rosie Marshall

Paulina wrote...

Running on a luxurious 6 hours of sleep the day began ridiculously efficiently. Jacob was already up and had made breakfast allowing for a fairly efficient start which was required as we needed to go pre-rig the first pitch of County and leave our SRT kits there. We didn’t prerig the second (which would later reveal itself to be a mistake) as we planned to exit via ignorance is bliss which apparently doesn’t require SRT. We got to the cave... read more

The grand return to Bull Pot Farm Finally!!! It did not disappoint featuring all the chaos you expect...with twice the efficiency! Our first trip of the weekend was planned to be Magic Roundabout combined with a wander into Woodhouse way. Now the problems began quickly. You see we couldn’t acquire a new version of the Magic Roundabout description and the old one was…. less than helpful. Quite confused we were not entirely sure if we needed a 25m rope or... read more

Rosie wrote...

For clarification if anyone wants to do the Magic Roundabout route in the future: the old Northern Caves descriptions on the drive are not particularly helpful, since the reverse route has more recently become the established route and can be done as a pull through (since you are going down Aquarius Shaft). Therefore, if you are doing MR, don’t wait for Bob’s Boss to look for the passage to the right, start looking for a smaller stumpier stalagmite that precedes... read more
