Look where the Rab sleeping bag got to!!
« on: January 22, 2019, 09:12:41 pm »
Remember the cavers' competitions at Hidden Earth last year?

Remember all the prizes up for grabs? All you had to do was enter any of the competitions - roll a ladder, SRT course etc - get a raffle ticket for entering then keep an eye on the forum.  Well Dickon did just that - and he won a Rab sleeping bag!

As always I asked for a photo of the prize so I could thank, Rab for supportng caving - and wow just look at the photos I've been sent recently!

Thank you so much to you and your brother for these amazing shots, Dickon  :thumbsup:

Do keep an eye out for UKC competitions - because folks really do win all sorts of great prizes and some then go off and have some amazing adventures with those prizes ;D

Photos taken at mother Carey's kitchen, Pembs.

We just abseiled in from the top and prussiked out so bit of a cop out really but really good fun.

Surprisingly I actually slept quite well…

I've done a few routes in Mother Carey's, but I always managed to finish them in under a day. Was this a super-long girdle traverse or something, Dickon?

Just trying to get away from all the January tourists Dave.

I'm sure my second wouldn't thank me if they had to haul a ledge up the space face!
