Victoria Aven - damaged rope/loose boulder - DO NOT CLIMB
« on: August 18, 2021, 03:44:15 pm »
All, it has been reported to the Peak Cavern keyholders that there is a damaged section of rope in Victoria Aven along with a loose boulder so DO NOT CLIMB UFN.

We are in the process of arranging to re-rig the pitches and to assess whether the loose boulder needs to be removed.

Many thanks, for and on behalf of the Peak Cavern Keyholders

Charley.

Sorry, I spent 39 years with the Post Office Telecommunications/British Telecommunications/British Telecommunications PLC/BT Group PLC and at every turn there were TLA's so forgive me if I continue to use them.... :-[

Pete is correct, TBH I assumed this to be standard SMS language, the sort of lazy speak that kills Phil W  :chair:

Phil is always BRB.

Hi Larry, as far as I know I’m letting you into the cave before 10 as per the peak speedwell website. I’ve got more than one group going in and if i were to join the first group which some of my mates are on then it would be difficult for me to let you in at 11am. Can’t be in more than one place at the same time.  :thumbsup:

Only got one day of caving this weekend, and three groups to let into peak, so gotta make the most of the caving day on Saturday. Maybe another time.

There is no update on Victoria Aven at this time, we are currently formulating a plan of action and as soon as it is safe once more, I will post on here.
