Sometimes survey stations are in the most inconvenient locations.

Dear Mr Petzl,

   I promise to wear a helmet on Telly in the future and to stop carrying my rope like a prat. Can I come out now please?

  Yours

T0 + 15 hours.  Still waiting for Sid to get his adjustable spanner to fit the bolt on the gate.  Rain continues to p*ss down.  Wish I could get underground...

In my day cavers were well hard, now they just seem a bit wet.

I began to realise that Parker's "Super Quink Washable Royal Blue Ink" has its limitations under certain adverse conditions.

'The ba****ds leave me to survey in, whilst they explore the new pitches ahead. Well lets just see how far they get without the rope!'

Note for the guidebook second edition,

When following the pull-through trip and you have been unfortunate enough to descent the wrong pot, do not fret. Simply coil the rope neatly, place one’s head between one’s legs and kiss one’s ass goodbye.

Reads guidebook: Ensure you only do the pull through on the dry pitch as the wet one is a dead end
