Hi Damian - which manual are you translating (assuming it's not ACT)?

Aye that would be pointless as ACT is already in english.

Trying to get myself ready for Weavers Point on saturday, ~200ft (60m) bluff freehang on which we practice weighted rappels for long drops. Since next weekend is.....WHITESIDES!!!!! (750ft!!!)

There is vertical practice tonight (it is morning here still!) which I may or may not make it too...part of getting myself ready includes an emergency doc visit in an hour and hoping I dont need surgery or some sort of outpatient procedure that I'll need some recovery time for.

Posted a photo of an incredibly famous and highly trafficked cave on Wezzit. One where when people find out where it actually is they will be kicking themselves.
I have a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel.

The Manuel Technique de Spéléologie from the EFS. It's a really good publication.

Anything from the EFS should be worth reading. :thumbsup: I'll want a copy when it's done.

Got to the gate at Schipol on my way back to Manchester from the US to find two members of the Krubera 2012 expedition queuing for security checks, so had a much more interesting wait for boarding than at any other point in my (otherwise non-caving) trip.

I did some highly exciting (and very minimal) caving website work. I also tried accessing the forum from a mobile device but think I may have forgotten what my password is. Also tried to conjure up alternative ideas for a caving trip for tomorrow.
