Not to be outdone by Goatchurch Cavern's Drainpipe, these cavers have decided to install their own.

With all these new paper ones around, the plastic straw scene has had to move underground.

So this is what happens when you don't tape a cave passage.

It was one thing slaying the Medusa, but it had to be removed in the interests of conservation.

The team felt that they had found the perfect replacement for that nasty red and white plastic tape.

Cavers call Cthulhu!

Congratulations, Alex - you win!

I didn't get it, so Googled Cthulhu - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu

...and you were spot on - and I've learnt something  ;D

Thanks very much to all who entered, there were some excellent captions as always and I wish I had tickets to give to you all....

Alex, please PM Badlad to arrange collection - he'll have them with him on the night.

Thanks also to Kendal Mountain Festival - not only for the tickets but more importantly for helping to showcase caving to a wider audience  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Cheers, Pegasus  :)

PS - if you haven't bought your tickets yet:

....come and listen to awesome lectures and watch a caving film premier then have a beer afterwards with your caving mates - much better than staying in and watching the tellybox :)

Wow thanks! I must admit I thought it was Saturday, when I entered... I am now desperate scrabbling to see if I can get someone to come with me as I am not sure John can come on friday. I assume I am best booking a bed at the red rose or something as that will be a late night drive back for an hour and a half back to mine from Kendal.
