Report by Richard Gover

The classic trip in Easegill that everyone who loves Easegill should aspire to. Don't take my word for it, it says something similar in NFTFH.

Generally the caving is relatively easy. Link Crawl was the only wet bit, and Pipikin was tiring but not horrendous. The challenge is the sheer amount and complexity of cave to navigate. I strongly recommend doing it in sections first to build up experience of the route (Top to Lancaster, County to Link, Lancaster to Pipikin etc).

Took 8 hours, and we were pretty happy with that. Yes we got overtaken, but they had one less person, didn't carry any rope and knew the route inside out. The YUCPC record is there to be beaten.
