Report by Max Spicer

A really good fun trip. The weather was stunning - cold and clear with snow on the ground. The change offers a fantastic view, especially with all the snow.

Aquamole offered a good combination of ropework and easy but interesting crawling. The Aven is spectacular and well worth seeing. Lots of fun! I'm sure Matt will offer more details...

On the way back, Tom, Alex and I went ahead leaving Mark and Matt to derig. We came out of the entrance shaft in the dark to find a bright moon and really clear sky. The walk back down to the car was incredible, with thousands of diamond-like sparkles reflected from the snow from our head torches. It was below zero, but was still warm and we all took our time over the change. Definitely Grade 1, but a Winter Grade 1!

Very glad I finally decided to go on this trip - it was a near thing but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
