Warmbac provided the suit.. Petzl provided the kit.. But as he approached the worlds deepest pitch..
Phil was starting to regret the Screwfix contract!  ;D

Now just you stay on the other side of that ladder with all your ironmongery until we've finished surveying.

The ladder?  It's just in case the one and a half kilometres of 11 mm rope from ukcaving isn't long enough.

Tunnel inspector, Mad Phil Rowsell, thought he had all the safety gear for the China Rail roof inspection.  But as he posed, mesmerised, for photographs he failed to notice the 9.15 from Chongqing was bearing down on him.

After close scrutiny of the small print in the Hidden Earth competition rules he was quietly confident that the Warmbac socks and tacklesack would easily be his as the prize for the fastest ladder climb.
The one thing to remember about an adventure is that if it turns out the way you expect it to, it has not been an adventure at all.

 ;D I knew he reminded me of someone! ;D

So here's my last allowed entry..
Frank Skinner enters the "Worlds best equipped caver competition."  ;D

Don't worry Spike if it wins a prize I'll share it with you..  You can have the Right neoprene sock, and I'll have the Left!

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.

Madphil was such a famous caver that Madame Tussaud's commissioned a waxwork of him. To make it atmospheric, they asked the sculptor to make a tableau with him and a ladder. The likeness was amazing, but some carping critics still claimed the scene wasn't quite right.

With a nice concreted floor all around, Phil wondered if he was a tad overdressed for a horizontal caving trip..........
