Leafing through NC1, I came across this cave, which looks interesting, if rather wet. There's a good survey on Cavemaps, but other than that I can't find anything about it.
Has anyone any knowledge of it? Is it ridiculously wet? What about access?

Thanks in anticipation....

There's a description of a trip there (and a first-person account of the resulting hypothermia suffered by one of the party) in Manchester University Speleological Society Journal No 3 (May 1969) pp. 4-6.

Thanks for that Dave, it sort of answers one of my questions!.
I couldn't find this journal online, but anyway I was really after some more recent information, if it exists.

I don't think I've ever been to this specific cave, but from other Muss finds in the area I can confidently advise that it will be low, wet and very flood-prone. Access shouldn't be too much of a problem that far up Littondale.

Was meaning to go there in good weather and wetsuit, but have never got around to it.
