Report by Matt Ewles

A great fun trip, especially as we (team Gary) didn't have to derig anything on the way back :-p though I suspect we shall pay for that on the next trip! Superb traverse just before the bottom, and some scary seems-terrifying-at-the-time-but-actually-good-fun unprotected traverses... good for boosting the confidence! The technical stuff was great, nice and varied, and as usual, I got strung up on the easiest pitch in the entire cave. Hrrmmpph. Really enjoyed the trip, well done to Gary for rigging so quickly and getting us out before the blizzard (sorry to everyone else!) Would definitely like to go back and do the wet route next time (in a wetsuit of course!)
