Anyone done this recently??  Is there permanent (useable) rope/ladders hanging down the 88ft pitch and Echo Aven?

 :bounce:- I had to put him on...  ::).

Went down at easter and both the 88 ft and echo aven had ropes in. They look like they have been in for years and i'm fairly sure they will still be there.

Did they appear to be in good condition??

The 88ft pitch was recently p-hangered and the rope replaced. Echo Aven rope is in good condition.

Can anyone confirm if the 88ft pitch and Echo Aven are currently rigged?

The 88 had rope at the top of it yesterday - we didn’t go down, so I can’t verify that it reaches the bottom (but it probably does).

I've had it confirmed that the alternative pitch up Echo Aven is still rigged and was used recently.
