Explore Hull pot

(1/3) > >>

Alex:
Finding little help in my club for an evening trip, I am wondering if there is any interest in someone joining me down Hull pot on Thursday at around 6:30pm to explore the passages at the bottom that are apparently un-pushed or at least rarely visited. A drought period is needed to explore it and that is what we have.

I have considered just soloing it and I may still do that, however there is a 100ft pitch and I suspect I won't be able to rig it without a drill if it's not been descended in many years. Anyone with a bolting kit want to help me? Or at least tell me what the rigging is like?

psychocrawler:
You can rig the pitch ‘en solo’ quite easily like I did back in 1985. Take a selection of slings, wires etc and don’t expect ‘dot to dot’ P-hangers. There might even be the odd old 8mm bolt. Enjoy.
Unfortunately I can’t make it due to an old age shoulder injury!

Alex:
Ahh so can be rigged off naturals, okay that is sounding more do-able then. I doubt the bolts would be much good from 1985.

psychocrawler:
Just don't drop the rigging gear or the rope or your SRT gear in the canals on the way in.
Great place and as you say rarely visited - unjustly.
Huge potential.

Alex:
Due to changing weather forcasts I am now going TONIGHT, if I can convince anyone to tear themselves away from the world cup.

Thanks for the info Psycocrawler. Northern caves says there is deep water, is this out of depth water? I am not a great swimmer in my caving kit.
