Report by Kevin Francis

Probably one of the most fulfilling trips I have done. This route through Peak is very varied and extremely rewarding. It has all the ingredients of a good cave, stompy streamway, muddy crawls, fantastic (in situ! yay!) pitches, stunning formations and an interesting history.

Katie was a fantastic guide who showed immense knowledge of the system and was able to tell us many funny stories relating to each stage of the trip. I would love to go back and do this again, the route finding was not that hard so it's something we could happily go back and do. The white river really has to be seen to be believed, and the SRT up to it is possibly some of the best in Derbyshire.
