Title: Wezzit?
Post by: mikem on October 26, 2010, 11:29:35 pm
Where is it?

Idea borrowed from another forum, whoever guesses the correct location gets to post their own picture - only condition is that it is a well-known section of cave not some obscure dig.

I spent ages trying to figure it out until someone told me how to do it.


If you select the photo on flickr and then "view all sizes" Select Medium or smaller and then right click to bring up the info. Then copy and paste the url link between the insert image brackets on your post.

I accept this is a little off topic, but didn't there used to be a sticky (in the photography section) describing how to insert images. I've just looked but can't find it. I have never inserted an image, but I may want to this weekend....

Yes I'd tried using the correct method several times: the internet seems very iffy all round at the moment, which might account for it.

Yes, sorry it took so long, the two deviations were a clue, but I thought that it was a flash at the top of the pitch. But guessing correctly means having to find something for the next round, so I'll go with this.

Post by: Anon on December 07, 2010, 05:01:37 pm
Maybe an educated guess, I was trying to think of where the passage was of reasonable size with mud and formations and it didn't remind me of anything in Ease Gill etc so plumped for Rift - must get back down there again, it's been some years.

Will put something up in a short while.

Not many guesses - maybe it is too obscure. I will give a big clue later today, but with no clue, just the name of the cave would have been OK, but with a clue, I'd expect the approximate location within the cave as well.
Title: Re: Wezzit?

Only been in Hagg Gill once and can't remember it! Might have missed it though as we were short on time and didn't get all the way to TWL.. Shall keep my eyes open next time I get up that way.

Right then, I've tried to find one a little more obscure than my previous photo, which was guessed with alarming speed!

Nope not Pikedaw (the mine shaft entrance is much deeper than this short natural shaft)

And it's not in Ease Gill either..

Looks like the first proper pitch in Swan Dyke (classed as second pitch). I promise Dunc has not told me where this is, if I am correct.

Post by: Anon on December 30, 2010, 04:41:24 pm
As I said above "I know someone should recognise it" and I was right, but you were there twice last year! It is indeed the first proper pitch in Swan Dyke, or the last if you only read the description in NC1..

Post by: Andrew W on January 07, 2011, 01:18:50 pm
It is indeed White Scar. Heading upstream it is on your left in quite a big passage quite a way into the cave.

Your go Alex.

To clarify - by Ingleborough area I mean anywhere on Ingleborough (any side of the hill).

Ingleborough Cave given that you didn't mention the cave name but suggested a location in that cave.

Give me some credit - even I'm not thick enough to think that "the Ingleborough area" means "Ingleborough Cave". As there is only one Inauguration Caverns in the Ingleborough area, I didn't think it necessary to mention the name of the cave.

I can confirm that this is correct, but only because I looked at the 'Properties' of the picture! (I should have done it earlier - I usually do.)

You must make sure there are no clues (like the name) to the location in the file name of your picture.

George has got it. It is 'Gingling Hole Final Chamber', or at least it was the final chamber in 1932, the cave is a bit deeper now.

The photo is by H.W.Haywood of Leeds Cave Club. You can see more of his work here:

Not vespers or growling......or anything else on east kingsdale.

Not Penyghent.......i've been a bit mean.......the bottom one is a real tough one.

Well, unless you're someone who is in same club, checks ULSA rantbook and is a facebook friend......that is!

Will have to dig them up from private collection next time!!!  :weep:

Sorry Mike. To be fair I haven't looked at your photos recently but they did look familiar.

Here is an easy one to be going on with. Cave and approximate location.

You're in the right general area but I wouldn't say it was that close to extreme ways. I don't know if the passage has a name but it is between two named areas on the survey.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on January 17, 2011, 10:47:36 pm
I recognized it as Mistral it is the decorated passage if you carry on past the hall of the mountain king at high level, though I do not remember the name. What happened to guessing the other photo's anyway?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Andrew W on January 17, 2011, 11:52:35 pm
Correct. It is the passage past hall of the mountain king towards cross hall.

I guessed the other photos before I posted Mistral though speleodroid's confirmation was a bit cryptic!
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on January 18, 2011, 01:06:13 pm
I think Dunc was also right because that passage is near extreme ways too. But anyway I better post something.

Sorry for being a pedant, but if it is Otter (and it certainley looks like it could be), I thought this was the "Dales" wezzit? If it is Otter, that's the second non-Dales entry I'm aware of. I'm not saying it has got to be the Dales, just that, if it is not Dales specific, then I have options for entering images of other areas. Just asking really. :shrug:

i thought this 'wezzit' was anywhere - must admit i prefer the idea of the 'mendip wezzit' being regionalised and think it would be a lot easier for all if the wezzit threads were area specific. I think it would be really cool to have a wezzit thread for each caving area.  ;D

It started out with Mendip pics, then Wales, then Peak then it drifted up north.. And it's mostly been the "Dales" since then..

But it doesn't have to be Dales-centric. It just happens that there has been a long series of photos in the Dales leading to cavers who guess correctly posting another Dales photo.

It's in the "UKCaving" section after all, not "Yorkshire".

Colour photography dates  back to the nineteenth century, but you're right in that it didn't become cost-effective until the early 1970s. This photograph was taken about 1968 or 1969, so you're pretty close.

Ireby Fell caverns rope pitch. Reason: Well the picture looks old and most people where using Ladders back then except for a few pitches such as rope pitch in Ireby Fell (I guess that is why it is called that anyway) It also looks like the pitch with the view point around the corner.

Too true Les, but you could argue all fruits are vegetables if you use the animal/vegetable/mineral categorisation.

Is that me in the photo? Looks like the exact same stuff I used to wear.

Not based on that however I will guess Notts 2? I was thinking Inlet 7 area but everyone is too clean for it to be that bit.

OK, I'll post an image if someone tells me how . . . yes, I know I've been there before, but I've lost the info. I just recall that I have to go through Flicker – is this the cave photo group Flicker or 'ordinary' Flicker, or does it matter? Once they're on Flicker, how do I get them here? Also, should I post images at full size, or low-res versions? And if I put them on Flicker with a name, then how do I get them to this site without a name?

Bat passage still looks that good though the taped path is a bit more defined nowadays.

Here's another one to have a go at. Name of the cave will suffice. I'm sure the chamber has a name but I'm not sure what it is called.

This new photo should be called the "HOLY MOLEY THAT IS AWESOME" chamber. Also, I want to go there. Like seriously.

I've not been there, it was an educated guess (because you said that Paul should have got it - that made it so easy), so here is a really easy one (and yes, we did do it in those conditions):

I had a wetsuit like that... love the cardboard / leather boots with long walking socks. I was told that if you wore plastic bags inside the boots, and over the socks, it was just as good as wetsocks.

They lied.

Not in the UK but visited very often by many cavers from the UK.

'mikem' began this game with "Idea borrowed from another forum, whoever guesses the correct location gets to post their own picture - only condition is that it is a well-known section of cave not some obscure dig."

I don't know Graham, but do know he's a member of UBSS (the website link on the profile bit helps) - they are Mendip based and I assume it's the same Graham that edited the book of Clare caves. Paul said it may be tricky (so given a lot of Mendip cavers on forum, figured it probably wasn't there), so, as above, put two and two together...

And I still don't know wezzit.. Only ever been to Cullaun 2 because the weather was too ropey for owt else and I don't recall doing anything like the picture.

The entrance.

Chris.

Not quite. It'll be the bit of "Flood Entrance" just before it opens out into Trib Passage., so about 30 m from the actual entrance.

I would have described it as close to entrance! Give us a bit of time to find something at least a little challenging!

I can see it too! But I dunno where it is.

All these photos keep making me wish I was back there though...your caves just seem to be so much.../cooler/ than ours. I mean I haven't been to a ton of caves here in the states yet but still...yours just seem to be in better condition and have a lot more formations than here.

Looks like GB. Surprised you haven't said that Amy!!
  It kinda does but I couldn't think of where in it (that I saw of GB) so I didn't say anything. My first thought was that it looked like where you are up on the bridge/start of White Passage looking into the main room, but I remember a lot more decorations and the proportions seem off, room doesn't look that big in the photo...maybe kinda where you head down to the stream like in Oxbow passage seems more like that size??

But yeah, I have a migraine so I can't see the image that clearly right now. I don't mean that to sound like an excuse, it's the truth! It looks like a blur with a body and a few white streaks which I assume are pretties along the ceiling and that's about what I can tell. (So how can I type and post? I know the forum layout and I haven't had to look what I'm typing at since...I was five? lol)

Need to know the cave and location in the cave for this one.

Well, I remember Heron Pot having low watery scallopyedged crawls so sure, why not? Heron Pot, somewhere after the skinny walking bit before the pitch. LOL I'm sure this is wrong but why not guess anyway? haha.

...and now cue Amy looking stupid if it's right   :lol:
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: damian on February 18, 2011, 06:45:47 am
Let's try an obvious one (which means it probably isn't) ... Swinsto Long Crawl (in low water)?

Crawl below Penknife Pitch, Top Sink?
Title: Re: Wezzit?

Just after the sharp bend in the entrace to pool sink.
Title: Re: Wezzit?

Nothing to do with Wezzit, but a comment on Amy's posting:

'All these photos keep making me wish I was back there though...your caves just seem to be so much.../cooler/ than ours. I mean I haven't been to a ton of caves here in the states yet but still...yours just seem to be in better condition and have a lot more formations than here.'

Well, I've never been caving in the States, but I've read a few books and looked at some pictures (e.g. 'On Caves and Cameras' or something like that). . . and I'd say she's got a nice surprise coming!!

Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Amata on February 18, 2011, 06:17:21 pm
Yeah, I've seen photos of really neat stuff too. But most of them, I can't see - WNS has closed so many caves and while I won't get into the politics of that mess, it basically sucks. Right now I worry in a few years that the gov't will have managed to even force private cave closures - especially once g.d. gets listed as a harmful invasive species. there are caves I know about here with lovely formations, but they are all closed (the ones I"m thinking of, anyway). It sucks. =(

I was going to suggest somewhere in Clare but I would have thought Graham might have guessed if it was so I am probably wrong.

Just in case I'm not then Cullaun 5  :doubt:
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: graham on February 19, 2011, 10:42:57 am
Sorry, Les, not paying attention. It's certainly not Neath, Mike and does indeed have the look of one of the smaller Clare canyons, in all sorts of respects. But which one, hmm, that's the question. With passage of exactly that size, Cullaun V would be the one most visited so it'd be the one to go for, but there are other very similar places.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Tim H on February 19, 2011, 06:17:08 pm
Still wrong everyone, and still in the wrong area. Might be an idea to see which area I guessed correctly for, as its the first time I knew any of the previous wezzits!

Looks tight, hmm Quaking forth pitch? Or though I have not been down there that could be the top of the Washfold big pitch? No I got it, third pitch in Marble Steps I think it is called stink pot.

Sorry for all the guesses but that could be anywhere with SRT lol. I may be in the wrong region. It could also be Gray wife. I must have got it by now surely?

Fulk you need  [ img][/ img] tags -  the button on the left of bottom row above the emoticons. For Flickr you need to click "Share this" above the image and then click "Grab the Link" and then paste that in between the [ img][/ img] tags

so

What does 'Grace Beats Karma' mean?

If you are very bored one day and want a laugh read this thread:

http://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=4607.0 (http://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=4607.0)

'Grace Beats Karma:Letters from prison 1958-1960' is a book by Neal Cassady (friend of Jack Kerouac and driver of the Merry Pranksters psychedelic bus).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal_Cassady (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal_Cassady)

I put it as my signature some time ago and never got round to changing it. It was meant as a joke and nothing profound.

Photographic memory Langcliffe has it. A lucky guess or did you recognize it? The photo is of the chamber on the lower end of the cheese press, as seen from high up above the cheese press.

Post by: langcliffe on March 08, 2011, 07:37:46 pm
It was mainly a guess.

Here's one that is probably a little more obscure than the ones I normally put up. It's in the Dales. Photo: John Sellers

It's one of those pictures that makes me think 'looks familiar' but I'm not overly sure why or where..

Beck Head Stream Cave?

Scoska Cave

Yes, it will be familiar Dunc, but it's not Scoska or Beck Head Stream Cave (a bit smooth for the latter!).

On behalf of Fulk!

The code you need to post is http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5175/5512204918_19ff91e3ef.jpg inside the img tags. You can get the code by clicking on "share this", expanding the "grab the html/bbcode" bit and finding the relevant web address ending in .jpg.

Not sure where this is but can I guess at Diccan Pot?

Still no correct answers. And no photoshop involved except for a bit of brightness/contrast adjustment.

There's an anchor just under his right arm, with 2 cowstails and a hand jammer (as well as the foot holds) preventing the falling!

Perhaps a clue in the morning if no one gets it before then...

I should have got that (having been closely involved in putting in the route), but the traverse line looks as if it's vertical. A great picture.

I don't recognise it, but judging by the expression on the caver's face, the big bag of rope he's carrying and the fact that there are lots of vulnerable formations, it must be somewhere hard and nasty that not many folks visit.

How about Dalehead Pot - pure guess, I've never been there.

Keep your hair on - it is a section of a popular route in a well-known a cave, and it is not in some obscure dig. If I gave the name of the cave, many people would recognise it.  However, if it upsets you, I'm quite happy to remove it and let you have another go.

That's the one. So named because it's just the right height to roll over and over on your side, and end up nice and dizzy, wedged in the bottom of the passage.

Try this; bonus points for the caver, but the cave name will do.

I would dispute that, having had photos published in a couple of rock climbing guides and been paid for a contribution to a climbing magazine once. I will admit that I've hardly done any cave photography although camera, flash and firefly are packed for next time I go caving.

I will be the first to admit your credentials are much better.

I believe it is called Rollover Passage.  :smartass: It is indeed after Roundabout Chamber and before Bridge Passage, Pi Chamber, etc.
It was just at the start of here that Bill Little and Lewis Railton camped out of the draught for some time when they were trapped by flood waters. After this they pioneered the Flood Escape route to ensure nobody became trapped again.

Nice =) I do remember someone through already hollering at me to roll - which I already was - I learned that trick long time ago if it's tall enough for my hips and long enough for my body width-wise rolling is *always* the way to do otherwise-would-be-belly-crawls. And if you get dizzy rolling...urdoin'itwrong I think...do it like you would spinning, focus on the ceiling with your eyes, it really helps, it's close and easy to focus on.

I was counting hand line climb as a pitch.

Name and location in cave please. A description of the also location will do. P.s. Person in photo cannot guess lol. This one might be easy for any YSS member as the person in the photo I took uses it as his avatar.

Nice =) I do remember someone through already hollering at me to roll - which I already was - I learned that trick long time ago if it's tall enough for my hips and long enough for my body width-wise rolling is *always* the way to do otherwise-would-be-belly-crawls. And if you get dizzy rolling...urdoin'itwrong I think...do it like you would spinning, focus on the ceiling with your eyes, it really helps, it's close and easy to focus on. At least that's what I do to not get dizzy.

Ha, crazy, can't have been that many people up there! It's not Absolution exactly, that's the name of the pretty chamber up the ramp from where the dig broke out. The passage at the top of the rope is called Frozen In Time.
How far did you get?

OK, here you go, nice easy one:

The Far Wallows are wide and aqueous.

When I first saw the photograph, I thought that the cable might be the guide line at the entrance to the Near Wallows, but it's on the wrong side of the passage, and I don't remember the crack in the roof or the boulders on the left, so I discounted it.

Not at all Mike. I don't actually have a link to your Flickr page.

As it was it was a lucky guess. I've been down the main stream route in Rumbling years ago and remember it being that kind of a cave. I had a good soaking as our rigger didn't bother with deviations! Never done the new stuff though.

Here is an easy one to keep the thread going.

You never have much luck with this, John!

I presume this is what you were trying to post? Flickr seem to have made it much harder to post just the image rather than a link to the actual flickr page recently. Some nonsense about their terms and conditions apparently.

You can still get the address for the image itself by choosing all sizes, selecting the size you want and then looking at the properties of the image within internet explorer or your browser of choice.

Bah I was going to guess that, I was too slow. Though I know its the last pitch, I do not reconsise the vantage point? Is there another passage branching off from the main passage near the bottom in Alum, I do not know about? Or is it because the picture is squashed?

Speleotron - it looks like you were trying to link to an image on your own PC.
You need to upload your image to t'web somewhere (eg Flickr), then copy the URL (the address in the browser) between (img) and (/img) tags in the message (only replacing the round brackets () by square ones [], if you see what I mean)
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: rsch on April 05, 2011, 11:17:04 pm
You might be better using the url of the image itself, which as the owner on flickr you can get but others can't (theoretically!  :coffee: ) rather than the whole page it's on but what you want to end up with is this...

What I've put between the square bracket img and /img tags is this: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5131/5444883627_66665ac971_z.jpg - see if you can find where that is from your flickr picture stream!

No & no . . . maybe it's a bit too esoteric; it's in the Dales, not one of the most 'popular' caves, and though the cave itself is a bit obscure, the formation is in a big passage very close to the entrance.

Aven entrance, Meregill?

That looks like a good call, Speleodroid. If you're right, that pool can be a real obstacle. I remember coming out of there with Mike Wooding when it had frozen whilst we were underground, making the passage impassable.  It took us over half an hour to chip our way through.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on April 12, 2011, 07:26:22 pm
It must had been dry when I did it, as there was no pool at all. The mere was empty so I guess it was very dry.

As for ice, I had the same problem with the lower entrance to quaking it was completely blocked by a wall of ice. Luckily there is more than one entrance and we brought the rope for the upper entrance.

Post by: Fulk on April 12, 2011, 08:40:55 pm
Quote from Alex (a bit off topic):
Quote
The mere was empty so I guess it was very dry.

I once went down the entrance pitch in a dry spell to check it out, and was amazed at how far you could descend – we reckoned 20–30 m below the level of the top of  the normal sump, in quite a big hole; subsequently Jack Pickup told us that years ago they laddered a 125 ft pitch down to water level and went for a swim.

That represents a lot of water when the mere's 'up'; where does it all go? Does it enter the known system? Does it enter it beyond the sump? Does it go somewhere different?  (And – I wonder  what would happen i fwhatever's holding it all back suddenly 'went' . . . . )

Hmmm, interesting; a  few pages back there's  a post by Dunc of Aven Entrance . . . looking into the cave; if  this is the same places (and it certainly looks possible) then it must be looking out; I'm not sure I'd fancy faffing with a camera on the lip of the pitch, where's there's precious little room to manoeuvre!

Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on April 19, 2011, 07:46:27 pm
Nah Aven entrance is no where near that tight it won't be there. I am thinking Strans Gill second pitch?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Fulk on April 19, 2011, 10:49:00 pm
It's a year or two (ahem) since  I was down Strans Gill – but I don't remember the crawl to he second pitch being that tight – just awkward at the end so that you had to crawl in front ways to rig it, back out, and crawl in backwards to get down it (at least, you can wriggle round at the top of Aven Entrance and get onto the rope (or ladder, as the case may be).
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on April 20, 2011, 07:03:09 pm
I seem to recall that we treated it as a hand line climb and SRT was not used because it was tight but yes it did not seem that tight. I did not like the idea of climbing it and not being able to see where my feet were going! As it was just a scouting trip after spending 4 hours on the entrance dig, I decided not to bother. I do want to go back.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: damian on April 20, 2011, 08:41:23 pm
The rope's probably on the wrong side of the caver for it to be Meregill (although I agree with Fulk that it looks like it). It also looks a bit like the approach to the 2nd pitch of Strans Gill, but I don't think it is. There seems to be some loose stuff on the right. Could it be the approach to the 2nd pitch in Large ... don't think so. A good quiz question!
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Fulk on April 20, 2011, 11:11:15 pm
If you go back a few pages to Jackalpup's pic of Aven Entrance, the rope's on the right and there is a slit-like bedding shooting off to the left; here, it's vice versa, which makes me wonder if it was shot from the other end of the crawl – which would mean from right at the top of the pitch . . . come to think of it, there are ledges there where you could spread out you photo gear (or maybe it got posted back to front?).

I thought it was tighter than the entrance. It was a long time ago, though ...
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on April 21, 2011, 07:28:02 pm
I had no SRT kit on so it probably did not seem that tight. Strans Gill entrance pitch is the only pitch ever I have ever put my descender on a cows tail. Probably not recommended doing that either.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Trog on April 22, 2011, 04:19:00 pm
Ed W is right, it is the aven entrance to Meregill, looking towards the exit from the top of the pitch. It's interesting that we all have different ideas about what is tight or awkward.

Alex, the person who almost fills up the passage in the photo is about twice as wide as you are, maybe that's why you didn't remember that entrance as tight!
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Ed W on April 22, 2011, 05:38:01 pm
Thanks Trog, perhaps the fact that it looked familiar to me says something about my size too...  At the very least I must be bigger than Alex.  I guess that also leads to an unfair advantage in that I may have had more time than most to take in the view when I was there.

Try this one for size, just the cave name will do.

I though it looked familiar.  I remember looking through the window where the flash is (centre route?) while sat in a big queue of cavers going nowhere and seeing a rope on the other route (left hand?) as in the photo and getting someone to flick me the rope so I could bail on my group  :)

Someone else should jump in (whoever gets there first I guess) as if you wait for me to buy a camera, go caving and figure out how to post a picture we could be here sometime.

Is it in long chamber ( i think its called that) on the Lancaster to Kape Kennedy trip? YOu crawl along that for a bit before downclimbing to a crawl under a calcite curtain. If I'm right then somebody else can post a new one I'm pretty busy these days.

Must be Cherrytree Hole although it's years since I have been in there. It doesn't resemble anything in Robinson's so my guess is Cherrytree Hole.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on May 16, 2011, 07:18:51 pm
I know where that is now then, if it's Cherry isnt that the bit you crawl over just up stream from the entrance? The bit I carried on forwards in, instead of turning left?

The picture I guess is facing towards the exit of the cave.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Anon on May 16, 2011, 07:24:13 pm
mrodoc has it and yes Alex it's just after the entrance and just before you turn left in to Crossover Passage.

Woah really cool video! I like that "We do the caves so you don't have to!" hahahaha that was the best cave video I've ever seen though. Very nice work both in video and the photography!
Yes I too thought it was one of best I've seen....need to relect on why hmmm

Thanks for the nice comments about the video.  At one stage it looked like it had all been lost as I mislaid the camera after the trip and assumed I had left it at the supermarket we visited on the way back.  D'oh!  Now the thought of having to go back and do it all over again ...

I think Southpembscaver should get the prize this time. It is indeed St. Cuthberts and not far from Boulder Chamber, but, in fact, it is a corner of Upper Traverse Chamber near the shortcut from Lower Mud Hall.

I have a waterproof flashgun with a built in slave. Unfortunately it floats so I also have to carry around a chunk of lead in order to use it! Hence it doesn't go underground very often.

Ah there we go, yes it is Ogof Gofan (forgot it had been on the cover of descent) so I guess its back to mrodoc.

Re. the lack of helmets this is because we had no flash guns. The exposure on this photo is around 4s and Stefan is holding my hurricane in the pool while I am behind the camera light painting with his duo. Quite a decent effect I felt and well worth the minuscule risk incurred by removal of the helmets.

No.
Last clue.
It isn't in Northern Caves 1.

You previously said it wasn't in Northern Caves 2 or 3 either. Is it in any guide book?

I said it wasn't in 2 or 3 as a clue to the area. I never said it was actually in 1 though. As NC1 is about 25 years old there's probably a fair bit that isn't. There is however a survey on a well known caving website.

Dunc remains the closest.

It is not.

Not many takers; could be that everybody's out and about caving or whatever on this glorious bank holiday weekend. But it could be that it's a bit obscure, and one narrow crawl tends to look like any other narrow crawl.

So here's a clue – it's on the fringes of the main caving area, and is a little cave that doesn't need any tackle. ;)

Looking up to Window Aven, Valley Entrance?

Bang on. Your go.

As I remember it that rope is anchored to a newish bolt. The next one up is anchored at the re-belay to a piece of rust. I carried on up to the squeeze at the top but failed to get through, and I couldn't see see what the rope was anchored to but certainly wouldn't trust it.

Unsurprisingly I have no plans to return to the top of Window Aven until somebody re-rigs it. I would suggest anybody who does go up there 'leads it' using a dynamic rope and places some running belays or aid climbs the whole thing.

Do nut trust the fixed ropes in Window Aven.

Anyway, here is a picture for you:

Well don't recognize it from the club archives, nor do I know anyone in the club with an orange over-suit. So I think I can guess and my guess is Washfold pot.

Perhaps the bag is deceiving, looks like it's full of rope (god knows what was in it) but there's not much in the way of pitches in this cave - 1 or 2 depending how you look at it.

Sorry I cant, it was a random guess. I have never been in the Box head/lost johns system so I know not the names of the passages etc. Been meaning to visit that system.

Well, if you've not been there, you have a treat (maybe several) to look forward to.

Anybody like to 'guess' where in the system?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: CatM on June 08, 2011, 10:12:10 am
I was going to guess at Lost Johns as I think I saw something similar when we went for a random explore, but I can't remember exactly where it was... Think we went up a fixed handline on the left just before getting to Lyle Cavern and the Boxhead connection?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Fulk on June 08, 2011, 12:12:45 pm
CatM – close enough; it's actually up the fixed rope to the Lyle Cavern High Level passages – over to you  :clap2:

Well, you gave a lot of clues - Book 2, small grotty cave with waterfall close to one of the most popular caves in the Dales ...

I've been there once, but I remember the waterfall as being rather wider than that.

Jean pot, second to last pitch? Though I know not what that other caver is doing? I take it there is a re belay down there somewhere, if that is the case my guess is wrong oh and he looks too clean for Jean, In which case let me go for Flood again, the big pitch?

It's gotta be somewhere in wales I reckon, though I know not where.

Grrrrrr.... Why not on ladders?
We always did the first 3 pitches on ladders. We only used rope on Niagara because of the potential danger of rockfall damaging our ladders.
And when I last looked there wasn't a tree at the entrance.

It is in Wales. In fact, it's not so far from the previous Wezzit.

There is indeed a tree at the entrance.

Not Ogof Nadolig. A bit further than that from Hesp Alyn. You would drive between this Wezzit and Hesp Alyn, but you wouldn't leave Wales.

Cabin Shaft ?
Title: Re: Wezzit?

No. Presuming you are referring to Cabin Shaft at Minera, it's further away from Hesp Alyn than that. But not by much. Probably in the same county as all three (Minera is in Clwyd?)

Chris.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: RobinGriffiths on June 17, 2011, 01:20:09 pm
Time for some triangulation then!!

Could be anything on Minera mountain, but not very familiar with those. Fish Cave near Prestatyn might be in range. I think there's a surface shaft there.

Title: Re: Wezzit?

No. It's only about 1/2 the distance from Hesp Alyn that Ogof Llanymynech is.

Dell Cave?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on June 17, 2011, 06:53:22 pm
Right did a google for Welsh caves and looked for onces with entrance shafts

The one that seems to fit the bill is it:

Pant Mawr Pot?

P.s. the other reason why I think ladders are barmy? Its that they break, twist, snag and are heavy to lug around how many accidents have there been on ladders compared to SRT? Plus i am s***e at climbing them ;) Though I will admit a ladder saved me £400 one day so they do have there place but I don't think in my personal opinion they have any real use in most caves with anything other then a couple at most short pitches or novice trips.

Oops please don't reply to the ladder bit otherwise this thread would go in the wrong direction. Feel free to quote me on new thread and have another ladder debate lol.
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: RobinGriffiths on June 17, 2011, 07:43:46 pm
A bit near on the distance criteria but maybe one of the Eryrys ones - Blaen y Nant, Lot Farm or Westminster maybe. Being a bit cheeky there with 3 guesses.

We have a winner! It is indeed Moel Fferna. It's surprising how much the entrance shaft looks like limestone in the photo! (maybe it is, I'm not sure of the geology up there).

1) There speaks an old Whernside Manor instructor. We youngsters have recognized the joys and benefits of ladders.
2) On Niagara, the rocks should usually hit the string-monkey whereas they might hit the valuable ladder , it having a wider profile.

Also John , it's Marilyn not Marylin

I did not think it would be that easy to recognise as it was nothing really stood out.

Where is it?

Idea borrowed from another forum, whoever guesses the correct location gets to post their own picture - only condition is that it is a well-known section of cave not some obscure dig.


This is just a personal opinion and isn't meant as criticism of any particular individual but if we are now posting photos where nothing really stands out as recognisable to deliberately make it harder to guess, are we not getting away from the original intention of this thread? There have been some pretty obscure postings recently (such as the one that required disclosure of the postcode to guess).

Personally I like to see lots of other people's photos and don't mind quick answers. I'd rather that than trying to guess what a non-descript bit of rock is by working my way through northern caves!

I agree totally! This one is, I feel, more in the spirit of things. It's a picture of one of the finest exposed sediment banks in a northern cave. It's a fantastic feature.

The banks in Sand Caverns and Shuttleworth are more obviously varved, and don't have the collapse features.

I don't remember the one in Pippikin, but it's not that.

It's a fantastic feature, and I hope that people don't clamber all over it.

My first photo was obscure but I was going to post more recognizable features such as paradox pond in my later photos. But it takes the fun out of trying to work it out if its too easy, I was sticking by the rules i.e. it was not a dig and was along the main passage, it was the exit from the very decorated chamber, 10 mins up stream from Jim's traverse towards the back of the cave.

Obviously it was recognizable unless... you looked at the log book. I shall have to use older pictures next time.

The start of the thread says "Idea borrowed from another forum, whoever guesses the correct location gets to post their own picture - only condition is that it is a well-known section of cave not some obscure dig." So I presume any caving region is fair game even if there is a Mendip-specific on and now a Peak one as well.

Hi Glenn

And there was I thinking I was being clever....old photo, destroyed cave.  Ok, some obscure bit of Llethrid Swallet?  It's in Wales isn't it?
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Glenn on July 07, 2011, 08:27:05 am
Hi Gus, yes it's in Wales, but not Llethrid. Time for another clue? Put the obvious elements of the image together (this does not include the very young Tony "Willy" Williams posing) and you are half way there.....
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Glenn on July 07, 2011, 02:15:49 pm
Is it too hard to even guess? It's a well known cave in South Wales, with the straws still intact when this image was taken on 26th February 1966, although to paraphrase the Old Ruminator in another thread, the straws "sure as hell ain't there anymore."
Title: Re: Wezzit?

Yes, it is Bridge Cave, but the "Wezzit" image is of the little chamber beyond the bridge, which I've always known as Straw Chamber, which is a misnomer nowadays...

If yes, are they still there today?

Due to lack of photographs, I'll offer the baton to anyone who hasn't posted a Wezzit photo yet. If no one posts soon, then open to anyone.

Enjoy Hols Pete.

Yep, it's the crawl at the start of the upstream section of the cave – and if you've never been there, you've missed what is arguably the best bit of the cave.

Really good. The sump was fairly full but as we had enough cavers to bail the whole of Kingsdale then it didn't take long to get through!

Another photo. Cave and location please.

Cross Hall is nowhere near Dusty Junction. Having discounted Hall of the Mountain King and noting that Dusty Junction was getting closer but not there yet, the clue was to keep going from Dusty Junction. There is a significant chamber very closely associated with Mistral.

Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Alex on July 28, 2011, 08:16:42 pm
I do tweak when I can be so bothered lol, normally when I increase the gamma it looses alot of detail, as it appears to have done in that one.

That was HQ upload Dunc.

No correct guesses so far but one or more may be getting close. I will be going on expo tomorrow so hurry up ;) I will PM Dunc the answer so he can say who's right or wrong but obviously can't guess, if it goes on past tonight and tomorrow morning.

Hesp Alyn - past the canal, through the flat plane and at the top of the 80foot slot descent ?
But there's no mud...  :doubt:

I did consider that Les ... although I would bargain that OHA was probably the muddiest cave in the UK, the flat plane is clean and the drop slots have one caked in cack and the other less so. The rope is dirty and there IS dirt above the rope. It could also be descended without locking on a descender and the caver is holding the rope in a manner non-conducive to using a descender (holding it above and not below).

The counter arguments were that the remaining rock looked too wet/clean for OHA and she could be loading herself onto a descender or the drop could be very short.

.... I thought it was worth a stab but it is a long shot I admit  ::)

You know waaaaaay too much anyway  ;)

So it's not in the Dales, Assynt, North Wales or Forest of Dean.
I don't know anywhere on Mendip that big apart from GB (Largest chamber in Britain) and there is not enough mud for it to be Devon (anyway you could fit all of the Devon caves into that one passage).

It looks familiar but if we go by guide book areas (as alluded to) then I am really only left with South Wales or Derbyshire (or Ireland I guess but it dosen't look "Irish")

It does look strangely familiar but I'm not sure if I've actually been there. It could be Peak Cavern somewhere but again, not anywhere that I have visited there.

There are actually very few sites in the UK with passages that big, phreatic and with a sloping floor like that.

My guess is it would have to be somewhere in South Wales, possibly Aggie but again nowhere that I can say I have been to. It does look very familiar in shape and style though. It is obviously well visited as well judging by all the prints in the mud floor...

Hum, I did wonder if you had been "cheeky" with your reply Les ....  :shrug:

The thing is, the lad in the picture is not covered in sh!te which rules out the 3 main ones in my locale. He is also not wearing a "caving suit" which pretty much rules out an NWCC hole especially as some of them have photograph publication exclusion clauses. He is not wet so it isn't Pool Parc, Llyn Du and ODB would both get him mucked up too.

It doesn't look like a mine .....

I guess I am missing something though  :'(

You clearly are. I've just looked through UCET's knowledge bank and found a report posted by you with photos by you including one of the very same pillar (although the angle is different). Now all you need to do is go through the thousand or so entries in the knowledge bank and the tens of thousand photos and you will be sorted.

Aubrey, not Chartist.

If nobody has it by tomorrow morning I will post a big clue...
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Ian Adams on August 17, 2011, 07:57:16 am
Well, I have scoured the headings from the knowledge bank (too many photos to look through, to try to do so would result in a collapse at the keyboard and a subsequently broken keyboard from the impact of the collision) and I just can't match your photo.

The "lad" in this piccie even has clean, white trainers which suggests he just "walked" in without a crawl, water, cack or anything at all. This would be exceptionally odd for North Wales.

Wedding Cave could be a candidate but there is no grafitti and Bodfari Mine (because of the rock colouration) perhaps but that is off limits. I am still dismissing mines even though there is a precedent for them already because it still just doesn't look like one.

You have me stumped you crafty buuggger  :shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

Title: Re: Wezzit?

Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Ian Adams on August 17, 2011, 11:53:51 am
Hum, as I thought, you HAVE been a crafty buugger  :ras: :ras: :ras:

It is Llanymynech Cave  ::)

It has a tremendous provenance being "Mined" in the Roman times with "deads" from that period still (apparently) present but it is also somewhat "alone" with no other caves nearby and it is also small making it unattractive to travel to.

There is, however, a very tight squeeze that I could only just get through which appears to be nothing but which leads to another part of the cave/mine which is larger than the apparent "first look" size  :blink:

.... A very obscure and difficult Wezzit  :spank: :spank: :spank:

Ian
Title: Re: Wezzit?
Post by: Les W on August 17, 2011, 12:32:27 pm
It is only just in Wales as well. The border runs around three sides of the hill.
I was really struggling for clues without giving it away, beneath a golf course perhaps... I can't believe nobody from here has been there, it is certainly worth a look if you are in the area (but I wouldn't make a special journey).

I'm pretty surprised nobody from SCMC, Shropshire Scouts, Dudley CC, etc. spotted it. I know of one person (Cave Leader) that does two trips a day in here! As Jackalpup said though, it is the only cave in the area...

Go on then Jackalpup

Ian (Jackalpup) already got it (eventually...)

The pillar is just through the passage at the back of the entrance chamber, perhaps you passed it so quickly that you never noticed?

The greatest danger caving here is of being hit by golf balls as you cross the fairway to get to the entrance (The golf club has provided periscopes to check the fairway is safe befor you cross).
