A fantastic SRT trip, I thoroughly recommend it. Many thanks Badlad for the trip and the chance to play with the camera. Below a few shots of the final pitches.

We are pleased to say that anchor installation in Mayday Hole is now complete. The anchors can be used this weekend if anyone wants. If you are the first group to use the anchors you will find each has a tag on them. Please remove the tags to discard later, and of course give the anchors the usual pre-use inspections.

We had a great trip down there just after Christmas.
A quality SRT trip just on the enjoyable side of “awkward” in places and always interesting for the rigger.

The evidence of the hard graft involved is clearly there (and also signs of “fun) so thanks to all involved.

Maybe put a sign at the bottom asking all visitors to take a rock out with them  ;D

Thanks again   :thumbsup:

Was down there a few weekends ago, and popped up that rope near the bottom up that horrible little mud slope. That aven looks interesting, can't believe you have not climbed it.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

You've got to leave something for the next generation of explorers, Alex.  Feel free to have a go.

Hmm I don't have the gear, or experiance in doing that sort of thing. I do have a drill and access to climbing rope but have never bolted an aven.

Great to see folk down there.

We've been down a couple of times, Badlad, and I think that it's a fabulous trip. It will become a classic, as will Turbary Pot which was opened up at about the same time.

If anyone reading this wants to derigg my traverse rope from the ledge half way down Baby Pitch I'd much appreciate it.  It got left behind in the big derigg and I haven't been down since.  I think there are four standard hangers and Maillons so you'd need a spanner.  It could be dropped off with Dave at Ingelsport or bringing it round here would earn you a cup of tea of course  :)
