    Shhh.... Cussey Pot had some new Bolts

    Best chance to avoid Loper Lust would be to knock Black Draught through from bottom of Cussey into Race Against Time. This is still the wrong side of Boil Up Sump 2 from SMMC, but that is freedived all year round. Black Draught also bypasses Vulgarious, which is a bonus. The only problem is...

    Shhh.... Cussey Pot had some new Bolts

    Yes, if that bedding crawl towards Loper is blowing that means the sump is open! Excellent news, thanks for confirming...

    Shhh.... Cussey Pot had some new Bolts

    Where was the draught detected to infer that conclusion? At the entrance to Loper Lust of higher up?

    BCA Council Elections

    In my opinion if someone has energy and enthusiasm to run for a voluntary position, I think it should be applauded, regardless of whether their opinions differ to yours. I imagine there's little glory being on the BCA council, but plenty of pain. Well done to all those standing. And if people...

    Interested to know what line of work requires such a sporadic feature list!

    Just Go Caving! - Images required please!

    OK, to kick start the post, here's some from me: Caving Student Under 18s Clubs Sciency I figure high contrast photos probably the best if being used as thumbnail or background shots. *I've not got permission from recognisable models but will if being used, please let me know...

    The Assault Course via Peak Cavern.

    Worth noting that (as far as I'm aware) there is no evidence of Towd man in a Grand Day Out, unlike in Pilkington Series. If I had to choose one, I'd surface dig towards Pilkington Series...

    The Assault Course via Peak Cavern.

    Nice report. Going up the pitches definitely adds to the reasons. There's certainly some cave missing at the top of there...

    What can caves teach us about climate change?

    Interesting to think that as caves are formed, lots of CO2 is actually released! One could actually turn it around and ask, what can climate change tell us about caves???

    Water levels in the Gentlewoman /Youds squeeze.

    We went for a gander at the through trip last night. The 2 wet squeezes needed about 15 minutes work and we were through fine. However about 10 minutes downstream from there it looks like tonnes of sediment has washed down and reached the roof! Whilst some of us ran around trying to find a...

    Caving undersuits vs drysuit undersuits

    We got a load of dry suits in a closing down sale about 12 years ago. Best furry suit i've ever worn for wet trips, almost comparable with a wetsuit as long as you're staying active (apart from the initial cold shock). So seemingly there are a variety of different options at play.....

    Venue for a bash

    Eldon use the Anchor near Tideswell quite a lot these days. It has a big room at the back that can seat 45-50. Food and beer are great, and some of the staff are alright too ;-) Then for something a big bigger there's the Mechanics in Eyam where DEF was held, when we fit in ~100 for a lecture...

    Rowter Hole Update

    Yes that's about the right horizon. There're two beddings marked on this survey, one would be about 60m down and the other about 75m. My guess is your bit is closer to the top one, which Hypothermia Crawl is on?

    Nice report, and great digging. Photos look a lot like the White River Bedding, looking forward to seeing that data....
