Report by Peter Scowcroft

Giants Hole is a fun cave, but the name is deceptive and missleading.
As the only giant in the caving club I can conclusively say this cave is not optimised for the larger end of the population.

Generally its an interesting maze like rift that tends towards tightness, opening into a large cave with a bit of everything every caver needs, mud, water, climbing and in the case of the wind-pipe a little bit of fear (in my case the worry was caused by my only torch being fully submerged underwater, and not waterproof).

Heavily recomended, though if you have anyone in the party with a chest over 50" prepare for a lot of waiting at the tight bits and trust me there are many!
