Chris wondered how long it would take Jason to realise that his beer had been swapped for the contents of a caver's welly.

The winners of the Three Counties Crawl proved a pint at every pot was possible after all

Drinking the final sump wasn't part of the original plan. It brought new meaning to passing a sump.

Chris and Jason invented a new drinking game. Who could get their beer down the back of the ascending caver's neck.

“If those bloody photographers take ANOTHER photo they will be getting a 12 shoved up where the don’t shine !!”

“I have heard Mark prefers it valve first”

Chris
Wow that's amazing, I've really done it.
Ive come to Yorkshire and ticked off possibly the greatest challenge in UK caving.
A full pint off Jason! Truly Amazing.

Jason
I must have been too focused on the trip or something.
I can't believe it, I just didn't see it coming.
A whole bloody pint as well.

If only we could read their thoughts..........

Chris
"Its a glass half full day for sure.
Amazing trip and not a sports team in sight."

Jason
"Its definitely a glass half empty day
All that effort and we didn't even rescue a single footballer."

Rumour had it that Jason was seen to smile following their momentous achievement, that this had even been captured on film for posterity.
Look more closely though, he was just holding in a massive fart.

Coming from Yorkshire, a free pint on arriving in Cumbria is all reet, having just had to traverse the dark lands of Lancashire!

What I like about this competition is that it encourages you to ridicule and poke fun at the individuals in the image.

Quite deserved given their track record developing our sport, setting a world record, setting a southern hemisphere depth record, coming to the aid of a stranded football team, being recognised by the queen and completing a historic first traverse of the 3 counties system.

So I now feel mighty proud to have done my bit to undermine their good character.
Thanks UK Caving
