Antofts Windypit
Thursday, 11 October 2007

Plan was to take some photos here. This was the second trip to do this since I forgot to put batteries in the camera last time. Mike, Warthog and I went in the Hog transporter from Leeds. This then stopped working and so we had to go caving and with a rather frustrated Warthog (understandably) but the arrival of the rescue vehicle and formula one driving that followed was more frustrating.
This Windypit is large and quite impressive in places there are sections of 4-5 feet wide and nearly ~100 feet high. There wasn’t a great smell of death around the place this time which made a nice change.

The large main rift after climbs up and down ends and a short way back is the Recent Fissure which leads to after a couple of climbs and traversing in a totally flat walled rift to a large chamber with impressive pile of boulders poised to form a roof of sorts.

Comments

The hog transporter has been successfully recovered and is now awaiting repair.
