Typical white male response.  :sleeping:

Don't you see it's people like you and your mate Nig, who are responsible for this sort of low level aggression which prevents inclusion and as a result, why caving is the preserve of white males.  :coffee:

Amata,
What fllter did you use?  I use Pentax DSLRs (burgundy K30 and silver K3) when not using mirrorless, so intrigued how you did it. Brilliant pics.

CROW, and cave access in general, are important subjects that merit serious discussion, and indeed, landowners and others may well read this forum. Silly and undeserved accusations of racism aren't helping anyone, and if they are meant in jest, they aren't remotely funny. Whoever you are, Lockchopper, it's time to lay off.

There was an English translation. It's a sad story, but not a great book, in my opionion.

About chopping locks off, or general, low level racism and bigotry?

What a load of bollocks. What racism and bigotry? Post a link to such.

I presume you are an existing member causing mischief.

Have you considered the mighty Ogof Draenen?

Ian


He should have done, i'm sure I sent him some info on that... :)

There's also a guide made by Tarquin www.cavinguk.co.uk/draenen/

If all else fails, the Darren Cilau to Ogof Cnwc through trip does not require a key. The route description is available in CSS Newsletter vol 52, issue 10. I can email it to you if needs be  8)


Martin, I think you may already have this, might be called Busman's holiday on my file though :s

This forum is readable by the public at large, and that includes landowners and mangers.  What do they think of the various attitudes displayed on UK Caving?

Worry about your skill. Not your equipment. 
Quite agree.
I wonder how may people (myself included) use all the features on their cameras?  I guess different people will use different subsets for different roles in different circumstances so manufacturers have to cater for all in each product.
Still, I tend to use simple aperture priority (AP) most of the time, with a bit of manual and use shutter priority on the 35RC as it doesn't have AP.  This gentleman's YouTube channel is awesome https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gI1ZTsLMcU
There again digital in body image stabilisation is ace in low light, and some of the cave stuff I've been looking at recently would not be tenable without digital.
I need a decent film scanner!!

Caving clubs are just demonstrating their patriachal male white privilege by putting locks on the entrances to caves. It's the social equivalent of a chastity belt. Another example of male dominance and misogyny.

We must destroy them!

Roy may have a white skellington, but he's from the black countray, which redresses the balance.
