David thanks for sharing the link. for me was a good report, enough embellishment with fact for the general public.  :clap: (y) :beer:

Anyone recognise where he's talking about (on the through trip from cnwc):
"...the  first narrow gap known as 'The Armageddon' - which is 16 inches wide.

They continue to delve deeper into the cave system before pushing into a tighter 12-inch tunnel known as 'The Death Squeeze'.

...He eventually manages to free himself before the pair arrive at their next challenge - a nine-inch tunnel nicknamed 'The Narrow Slump'."

Before arriving at " 'one of the most claustrophobic squeezes in the world' - a gap know as 'The Vice' which narrows to just four inches wide." [My highlight]  :confused:

(His previous experience was in a sensory deprivation box - I feel he should have stayed there)

But then, is the three counties traverse really "the longest journey in underground UK"?

I rather liked Caver Keith's Daren video, starring Chunky:

PS my 3Cs piece is still there.

Yes, if you have the link, or run a search. My comment was really that your article seemed to have been bumped off the home page by some drivel about a YouTuber getting scared down Daren, but that's been bumped off the home page too now. I guess that's the nature of the industry, chuck up a story on the home page and replace with something else within less than 24 hours.
