Remember the cavers' competitions at Hidden Earth last year?

Remember all the prizes up for grabs? All you had to do was enter any of the competitions - roll a ladder, SRT course etc - get a raffle ticket for entering then keep an eye on the forum.  Well Dickon did just that - and he won a Rab sleeping bag!

As always I asked for a photo of the prize so I could thank, Rab for supportng caving - and wow just look at the photos I've been sent recently!

Thank you so much to you and your brother for these amazing shots, Dickon  (y)

Do keep an eye out for UKC competitions - because folks really do win all sorts of great prizes and some then go off and have some amazing adventures with those prizes ;)

Surprisingly I actually slept quite well?

I've done a few routes in Mother Carey's, but I always managed to finish them in under a day. Was this a super-long girdle traverse or something, Dickon?

Just trying to get away from all the January tourists Dave.

I'm sure my second wouldn't thank me if they had to haul a ledge up the space face!
