Surely no sane person went caving given the well publicised storm system with associated weather warnings issued.

This looks like a well researched and informative topic, better pass judgement from the comfort of an armchair

No novices, just someone who was exceptionally tired.

Lancaster is fine in wet weather, there's a whole dry route to play around in. Lots of people went caving over the weekend, as there were lots of places to go.

Luckily there were plenty of people around to help out and CRO weren't needed in attendance :)

"2 novice cavers with the group were too exhausted to climb out without assistance".

I'm struggling to see why this thread was started?  :-\ :shrug:
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Possibly due to the suggestion elsewhere of artificial aids being put in to assist novices...

I'd rather trust my own judgement as someone stood at the top of the shaft hauling on sat night.

One required assistance. Neither were novices.

As the Access officer for CNCC I can confirm that there is absolutely no problem with any of the university caving clubs or any of their members who attended Northern CHECC accessing any of the caves in Easegill and the surrounding areas.  In fact this is just the sort of event we wish to encourage.  If an individual should require a little assistance (or more) on the exit of a through trip we would consider this part of the learning curve that has been a major part of club and group caving ever since caving first began as a sport.  As far as CNCC are concerned there is nothing unusual about this sort of CRO alert which amounts to nothing.  A good weekend was has by all by the sounds of it and well done to the organisers - we hope to see you all back very soon.

Derbyshire cavers must get special treatment, cos we (I mean they) didn't get this publicity. We (I mean they) would have gladly received this publicity as proof that we (I mean they) actually leave Derbyshire.

71 NCHECC attendees went underground on Saturday and we were all fine bar a tired fresher so it can't have been that bad.  :halo:
