Yet another video of Giants

I've got myself a Go pro as a present so here's another video of a trip down Giants as my first attempt at gaining viral fame. Feel free to give it a watch if you've got 20 minutes spare


The trip was down to East Canal but the battery konked out in the upper galleries but much rubbish was spouted.

With zero intention/likelihood of ever going into that cave (cos Radon*), it's good to be able to see what it's like so thanks for posting.

[* Giants Hole near Castleton has what is probably the greatest recorded radon daughter concentration in any natural cave in the world, 42 WL (- 155,400 Bq m-3 equilibrium equivalent radon gas. Notifiable level for HSE purposes is 300 Bq m-3]. Source: https://docksci.com/abstract-health...n-british-caves_5cf60bd7d64ab202e9a141bd.html

Radon is a big problem in Giant's. When the BCA were filming their well known advanced caving techniques instructional film The Descent down that cave, they ran in to some previous cavers that had been mutated in to echo location hunting cannibals by the high levels of the gas.
