Ineffective old linen tape in Shatter Cave. This has now degraded an in places where in contact with stal has become stalagmited and brittle.
There are muddy boot and handprints marking the route through the very pretty high level passages in Rowter but I would much rather see that than tape in any of the new bits.
The conservationists need to give some serious thought to educating others. With the majority of our new cavers coming from university clubs, perhaps the powers that be should engage with CHECC and formulate a plan.
Lovely MM. Not the UK ? Looks very very fragile to me.
Personally I think caves such as this should charge a conservation fee.
Yes, nice pic Mel, err--- why does it look as though the cameraman is the wrong side of the line???
I really appreciate taping, it goes a long way to stopping me being the cause of terrible damage, and personally tape in a photo doesn't bother me.

Although clearly it's actually done for the benefit of the cave, rather than the benefit of the visitors.
