Went down Odin Mine for about the 50th time, which definitely makes me a lunatic.

I can beat you on that buddy in Holme Bank   :thumbsup:
I dont know where I am going, but will know where I am when I get there.

With Odin, the miracle is not that he went down it 50 times, but that he got out again every time!

Funny you mention that, as we discussed that very point at the bottom of one of the 'warning' pitches, and decided that it was actually fine, compared to some other mines I've been in recently. That said, the pitch I was looking for appears to have disappeared under a heap of rubble, so you may have a point.

Can I just point out as well - there is SO much fragmented phreatic cave in Odin. There, I wrote it :)

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain,
And the stream that falls from hill to plain.

16 years (and 2 weeks) after I started caving, I finally visited Wookey 24 today. It did not disappoint  :)
