    Harness found

    I found a purple Petzl harness in the Bull Pot farm washing pool today, I left it next to the farm door. It has a bit of rust on it, not sure how long it's been there

    Cow Pot in wet weather

    I've read the guidebook weather warning relating to Cow Pot. Do any local experts think it'll be too wet based on Tuesday's or Wednesday's forecast?

    County Pot ropes

    I personally don't feel the need to practice my rigging all the time. I'm beginning to change my mind on this particular location, I think I'd like it permanently rigged.

    County Pot ropes

    It makes a trip that involves County just that bit easier it those particular pitches are pre-rigged. To answer your question, yes I can rig County and I am able. The "accumulated tat" comment makes it sound like there's loads of ropes on those pitches, rather than just one rope on each pitch...

    County Pot ropes

    I personally quite liked having them there, made trips a lot easier with less faff at the start or end, depending on what you were doing. I think it's a shame they're gone. Why is this cave different to all the other caves that have in-situ ropes in? I'm not massively bothered, btw, just...

    Boxhead Pot

    I've been trying to get to Boxhead Pot the last few weeks but failed due to various issues. This weekend it looks wet with possibly some rain on Monday, the day I'm hoping to go. Before I apply for a permit, can someone tell me how bad Boxhead gets in wet weather? Thinking of doing the Kendal...

    Bolt failures

    I try to rig with best practice in mind, one of the considerations being a bolt failure. Am I correct in assuming that P bolt failures are rare or non existent, through bolt failures are rare but spit failures occurred enough to warrant the move to P bolts? With P bolts and through bolts, is it...

    Has anyone took the time to compare different forecast providers for caving areas to see which is the most reliable? I contacted a few of the providers that I use recently to find out about the differences in data and modelling and got the following replies. I'd be interested in anyone's...
