Notts 2

Notts 2 Sunday, 30 September 2007 Very pleasant sunday trip into Notts 2 – a trip I had been wanting to do for ages but hadnt got round to. The entrance shaft was impressive. Both the upstream and downstream sumps were visited and various inlets explored to various degrees. Some of these ended in dodgy […]

Crystal Cave/Dog Hole connection

Crystal Cave/Dog Hole connection Saturday, 29 September 2007 As it was a CPC meet to Barbondale I took the chance to have a look at the infamous connection between Crystal Cave and Dog Hole, which takes the form of the awkward Barkers Passage leading to an extremely tight squeeze only passable by very thin cavers….as […]

Out Sleets Beck Pot

Out Sleets Beck Pot Saturday, 22 September 2007 Fine trip down this classic pothole on Penyghent Gill. As I still had the parents landrover (which was reason was over in dales as had to return it 🙁 ), we took advantage of this by driving most of the way to the entrance, so as to […]

Grey Wife Hole

Grey Wife Hole Saturday, 15 September 2007 As both Sam Allshorn and myself had plans in the evening, we decided on a trip down the short but fine Grey Wife Hole on Newby Moss. This trip was to also represent my latest dabbling in the dark art of underground photo-faffing. After a fine, albeit sickly […]

Strans Gill Pot

Strans Gill Pot Sunday, 9 September 2007 Another fine trip down this classic tight but very well decorated Yorkshire pothole. Met Sam Allshorn and Simon in Hubberholme at around 10.20am, but problems with arranging a call-out meant we weren’t up at the entrance until around midday. We then proceeded to get changed on this fine […]

Pen-y-ghent Pot

Pen-y-ghent Pot Saturday, 8 September 2007 9am, Settle – It being some years since the majority of the group had visited PYG, there was some trepidation as the trip began. Would the Settle Down still be in business? Would the bacon still be as deliciously fat as a gammon steak? Fortunately things had not changed […]

Birks Fell Cave

Birks Fell Cave Saturday, 1 September 2007 A lack of things to do at work means I can write some rant… It was good to finally tick this excellent pothole, which has proved fairly elusive in previous years (was raining/ hungover/ went to watch lots of cars smash into each other) When our party arrived […]

Rowten – Valley Entrance (and back again)

Rowten – Valley Entrance (and back again) Saturday, 1 September 2007 With the low water conditions and not really fancying Birks Fell having done it fairly recently, I set out to do another trip I’d been keen to do for a while – the through trip from Rowten to Valley Entrance. As I was on […]
