Having seen it recently in real life, I must point out the superb quality of the shoring on display in these photos. Have you ever seen such a neat, trim shaft? These chums have really mastered the art.
A question I've always wrestled with on where to dig is this. Should you dig in an area with no known cave or little known cave in the hope of finding a big one? Or is it better to dig in an area where there are already a lot of known cave in the hope that there is even more?
The entrance to Fing Hopeless is only 92m from a well known cave but up to now shows no sign is going anywhere near it. It's a rich area of cave development and that definitely helps.
