How about Canopy Chamber in Shatter Cave (mostly coz of the boulders on the floor!)??  :shrug:

Well done to Les and Ocean Rower, it is indeed in Great Chamber.  As Les got there first, your turn next.

I think that Chris had the right place but is chamber-lexic and mixed his Main with his Great.

Indeed. But, hey, no prizes for thinking you're right but saying the wrong thing in error!

Where's the next one- bring it on. And next time I get one I shall not be so lenient on the guesser.

Try this one, a little obscure but I'm certain that most of you have been there.

Aww damn I should have joined in earlier, I totally guessed GB for the photo up top on this page, I'd have been right! Not bad for only seeing it once, eh?

This new photo...Hmm...it looks a lot like a spot in Pettijohn but that's in TAG not Mendip. Hmm...OH HEY is it that squeezy spot downward forget what it is called but I saw it on a youtube video of one of the Mendip caves - it's like hard to find and it's the way to continue onward, you squeeze down and then out and then it opens up a bit again and I think usually people drop a rope to help get back up? (so descriptive I know...haha) it had a really funky name...crab? lobster? something like that I think.

The Lobster Pot in Sidcot Swallet - no it is not that.

Hope I am not confusing you Amy - I used Hugh's computer to put the photo on.  (he's my husband   :hug:)

And no it isn't Mangle Hole either.

Is it Fairy Cave? I am going more by the muddy rocks than the passage shape.....

No, not Fairy - though there is a squeeze a bit like that in Fairy I think.

Awww awesome :) I want a caver boyfriend/hubby!
Erm on topic, yeah well Lobster Pot was my only guess (not bad for caving via youtube, eh? haha) But it still looks like a spot in Pettijohns. I'll have to wait for the next photo to guess it.
