Up Shit Creek
« on: May 24, 2018, 11:13:52 am »
Recently we've been back pushing some areas of Excalibur Pot. There are lots of unanswered questions about where lots of the water is going and how it gets to Bogg Hall Rising over a mile away.

Our focus over the past few weeks has been at the 'Cobbled Sink' in Shit Creek. This is quite grim area with not much space to work, however Shit Creek carries water at all times of the year with several inlets feeding it. All the water sinks into a low arch under a wall and seems to easily take all the water, even in high flow.

It's difficult digging but with a bit of chemical persuasion it's getting bigger. Just a matter of time before we're into the stomping streamway beyond!

The YCC and NYMCC would like to state that it was not necessary to abuse or evict any badgers during the exploration detailed within this particular trip report.
I have a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel.
