Looks like a bold infinity sign? Or infinitely bold? Neither ring any bells. Another clue perhaps?

That's right Trogger. Blackpool Sands is not far away from this waterlogged passage.

Afraid not although the Oomagoolie explorers (LUSS) also chased their tails down our mystery passage.

Must be Ouroboros then... thought it was a worm so I checked it out on Google-Wikipedia and all is revealed; bit intellectual that! Didn't help that on the ULSA survey it's spelt Ouroborous with 10 letters not 9; that's a university education for you!

That's the one Trogger. I wondered about the different spellings on various Mossdale surveys but didn't want to over complicate the clue.

Over-complicate your clue?  It only had one symbol !!

Anyway try this one: "Ever increasing fun to be found in this section of Dales cave? I doubt it!"  (6,5,7).

Strangely enough CrickelMal, no. But you have the right idea.

BTW the clue should read "Right in intestine sounds like a major rising (4, 4)"

Apologies for my uselessness.
