Not sidcot.  The squeeze isn't as bad as it looks in the photo (or when stood above it in the cave).  You are correct the photo was taken on the way down.

It's looks a bit too muddy but colours can be misleading.
Is it Withyhill, coming down from Green Lake Chamber?

I think you might be right Chris - that bit near Junction Chamber (or lots of other places in Lionels!)

Or Tynings maybe?

Definitely not lionel's!  However it is tynings - should ask for the location too as the squeeze is named.

I didn't think the squeezy bit I thought it was had a name. It no longer exists either. It was at the end of a little chamber not far from the entrance.

This bit does have a name and is still there - well it was on 30-01-10 when the photo was taken.

I think it might be the climb or slot down into Dragon chamber. :thumbsup:

I agree with treemonkey,
there are only two vertical squeezes that could look like that in Tyning's,
the other is adjacent to the scaffold pole that purports to hold up the roof /boulder
on the main streamway, where you can go under or climb up, then drop down.
But I too would plump for the vertical squeeze from Dragon down into Sheep's Jaw.  :smartass:

You need to upload them to a photo sharing site like photobucket and then link to them.

Can't you drag them on to your desktop off the disc(s) and take it from there? (Not that I'm much of a one to offer advice on this topic, considering the problems I had up-loading my snaps before I finally got the hang of it! :-[)

Just copy them off the disk onto your computer...  Then log onto Flikr, Photobucket or whatever and follow the "upload" instructions.

Now if you'd taken all your photos on good old film, and had to scan the prints.....

Thanks Mike, but still not sure how to post? Not that good with computers!

Anyway, don't think many cavers have been here! :thumbsup:

Sorry to strike a sour note – but isn't that a bit fatuous, especially considering that no one's had a guess for nearly 4 days?

Not really, seeing as Doug didn't actually post the photo (even though it is of him).

Anyway, we decided ages ago that if nothing was posted then another picture could be put up, or perhaps Doug can find an alternative...

Doug is one of the least fatuous cavers I know,
he is almost skinny

More likely to be Axbridge Hill Cavern, or something over that way...
