    Shuttleworth Pot

    Ropes were still up last weekend and in good condition too (though the first pitch would benefit from a deviation). Then again, it's not too much rope to carry if you've got it.

    Alum pot extra P hangers

    Had a trip down the NW route yesterday. The 2 best positioned trees at the top (where it looked like the route was meant to go) didn't look very lively, however using 2 nearby trees (a bit closer to the stile) it was perfectly doable. If it helps your numbers then 20m took me exactly to bolt 32...

I've been reading a chapter from Caves and Karst of the Yorkshire Dales by Tony Waltham and Tim Allen - Chapter: Caves of Leck Fell and Ireby Fell. (This chapter available freely online) While the authors are talking about drainage...

    Glasfurb's : did I get to the end?

    When I went in Feb 2023, after passing east through the crawls towards the area marked as Choke, I was presented with a 3m pool which then turned 90 degrees left (don't remember much on the right Topcat) as a duck under an arch with maybe 5cm of airspace but only right in the middle, with quite...

    Imperial College Contact - St Margarets Hut

    Hi Matt, Sorry about the slow reply. The part of Imperial that looks after the hut 'Move Imperial' took some time to respond. Unfortunately their response was "The Hut is only useable by Imperial staff and students." Hope you can still organise a good meet! Davey :)
