A complex arrangement at the mine/cavern dig. Mr O'Doc on the pole traverse. Left the platform support pole. Below the flooded shaft and alcove where we are digging. In there the spoil disposal pipe for shooting dig stuff down the shaft. TG6 with Skyray torch and headlamp back light below. All done in a rush as the good Doc hates the traverse.
