"the water also backs up as it meets the physical constrictions caused by cavers bodies"[\quote]. As you get closer to the second pitch it becomes a narrow vertical rift, awkward to rig the second pitchead but there is a small chamber just before this in which to gear back up. However almostr immediately the pitch open out into a good size shaft (Route 66?). The only other thing I remember is that the last rebelay brought us right back under a smal waterfall
Can't really remember the weather, but the only water we encountered was below the last rebelay. However there was plenty of water in Long Churn the next day and we decided not to do Diccan and went down via Dolly Tubs/Bridge instead.

Would like to give it a try.
