    Peak pontification (split from Rowter Hole Update)

    Is there not a fairly hefty hade to the rake at Rowter though, as demonstrated by the fact that the vertical engine shart which intersects with the vein is about 20m South of the rake. Since bottomless pit is deeper than rowter, you'd expect a bigger distance South before it intersects the the...

    Peak pontification (split from Rowter Hole Update)

    Not sure this has been mentioned before, but the far end of Hypothermia passage ends in a Shackhole Scrin for sure. Pokey place to be digging through a choke, but could yeild access to the continuation of shackhole scrin towards Longcliffe?

    Peak pontification (split from Rowter Hole Update)

    Indeed, it was dropped from a German plane that I believe had been shot over manchester somewhere and was jettisoning its payload in case it came down (wise). I never found out whether it did make it back to Germany or indeed crash landed somewhere And its here...

    Indoor Cave rescue

    I know I shouldn't pontificate on these things, but sounds like at toxic shock syndrome type thing to me, resulting from some sort of suspension trauma / crush injury (i.e. being stuck in very awkward position for a long time).

    Blackwell Dale Access problems

    OK, so Blackwell dale doesn't have many caves - only perhaps Aragogs is affected, but the landowners seem to have finally banned access to climbers (boulderers) Post from Jon - the BMC access rep..,31228.msg675709.html#msg675709

    Can anyone lend us an underwater drill?

    In my experience of flooding drills/batteries. Its not a case of the drill working or not, I'm pretty sure an electric motor will work whilst flooded. Its more a case of the circuit boards that sit within the batteries and the drill, that provide 'overload' protection or speed/trigger control...

    Bouncing metal work

    The first question was 'Would you use it', My answer is yes. The second question - how far is too far, is impossible to answer, but based on the only evidence I can find online, and whilst it veracity is not 100%, I'm reasonably confident that as has been said, krabs dropped massive distances...

    Bouncing metal work

    "you should immeadiatly retire dropped krabs due to micro fractures". I've heard this 'rumour' loads of times. Bit of googling and this is the most scientific bit of info I could find. 'In a test conducted by REI, thirty carabiner bodies (half ovals, half Ds) were each dropped six times...
