Sorry, I meant if the image was the other way around. But that second piccy confirms it's not Thorn Pot.

You've got me scratching my head; it certainly looks familiar. Might have to wait for more clues.

That is a mighty chasm and the abode of dragons. This is a teeny bit more compact, especially underground. Squeeze even. No rope.

I can see that some here may not be completely au fait with contemporary children's literature.

When I upload the beautifully illustrated guide you will see I am laughably stuck.

I don't think Green Slack has a tree?

Correct sir - over to you!  New Goyden acting as a resurgence, with the main streamway (in normal conditions about 90' below). Mind boggling!

Scary as well! Here's my offering - all the clues are within the photograph:

Is it the climbing/handline route down to Fall Pot?
Awkward, grumpy sod.

Not there - it's a lot cleaner-washed than that, there's only one rope, and the footholds are flakes.

The main  clues are the funny rock-type near the top right, the fixed rope, and the flakes on the climb.

The rope is knotted Black Marlow which started life with the Special Air Services.

We're not there yet (but getting closer). Clue 2: It's nominally known as being 6.096 metres.

Well it's certainly not the 20 in Swildon's!
