Carlswark Flowerpot dig / Insitu rope?
« on: March 06, 2021, 08:23:17 pm »
Is there an active digging team at Carlswark flowerpot entrance?

There's a new blue, knotted polyp rope Insitu there. Clearly that'd allow descent to a suitably skilled person, and potentially ascent if you're nimble(!??).

If it's in regular use, please disregard this - continue as you were you wonderful people.

If it's abandoned - I'm in favour of removing it - because I don't think a member of the public could return up it and would not encourage anyone down "to have a look" because although you can exit the gin entrance, the chances of you randomly descend a rope is not that you find your way out there.

Again, if there's an active ish dig - I see no problem with it staying. ☺️

Yes I heard a team are pushing one of the more promising leads in there, I'd leave it in place and not disturb their efforts, it's not cheap that blue polyprop!

They'll be in to the master system in no time and it will all be rigged on knotted bailing twine for tourist trips.

2xw, are you on the team?

Personally, i would agree that it should be removed for the reason stated, how long does it take to re rig if you leave it knotted and use a krab and sling
