Ropes and Anchors in Buxton Water Aven are in a Dangerous condition as a result of deterioration due to Age.
The Aven has now been surveyed but a return trip is needed to replace the rope and anchors.
How would people like it left? Rigged with resin anchors and new rope? Rigged with resin anchors and no rope just pull through line, or just striped out?
Jim L "Derbyshire Section" many thanks to Colin for the surveying help

Any one using them does so at there own risk as they are intended only for the Digging team.

A choke stone needs stabilising towards the top of the Aven and the two ruble slopes which are also near the top.
