    Inflatable Recommendations for use as buoyancy aids Something like this. Mine must be either 59L or 79L, I'm not sure which. Once you've finished swimming you remove the excess air and stick it back in your tackle bag.

    Inflatable Recommendations for use as buoyancy aids

    I've used a large Heavyweight Ortleib Drybag whilst canyoning many times and I'd recommend them. You can keep stuff dry inside them for most of the trip and when you get to a long swimming section you just open it up to fill it with air, roll the top over a few times then you can lean over it...

    Problem at Braida Garth in Kingsdale, last night.

    I think it was the Yordas gate that was left open. Maybe the CNCC could offer to install a style by the Yordas gate and put some signs on the others.

    Stone shelter on Whernside You could ask here if they know who the best person to talk to is. They have a campsite and a cafe on the 3 peaks route so they're ptobably used to daft questions from the public

    Stone shelter on Whernside

    Somebody could ask the farmer. If they've been around for generations they'll probably at least have a theory.

    How is that relevant to caving? The stats for caving say something completely different.
