Most of Sam's original exploration ropes have now been removed (or were planned to...

    Kingsdale Master Cave incident on Sunday (06/08/23).

    On the day of Alasdairs stickage there were two ropes on the climb at the back of the bridge. Actually it was one rope with two drops. Alasdair chopped one when he was stuck.

    The re-survey is definitely work in progress but it will be finished one day. Time as always is the problem. This coming summer will see lots more added. The Eternal Optimist connection will look much better drawn as a separate map as it is mostly underneath other stuff. The data is there so...

    With the recent activity on UK Caving regarding Lidar and cave surveying, let get a new thread going on the this subject and possibly others such as Photogrametry. Historically Lidar kit has been stupidly expensive and has not really been within the realms of your average cavers budget...
