We'll post as they are sorted.
Will be the usual...
(Dihedral is only for use by club members while the winch is running)

Henslers Pot now de-rigged in anticipation of wetter weather later in the week.

Will there still be people around for cavers to sign in and out (per the FAQ) for an evening trip or should we make alternative arrangements?

Also Henslers and Bar Alternative.

In case of confusion - HardenClimber3 is not referring to the Bar Pot Alternative, which goes down Small Mammal Pot, down Whitehall, and then descends South East Aven (see here for further information). He is referring to what we used to call The Ninety - in other words the route that goes down the near side of Bar Pot Big Pitch which has a rebelay adjacent to a ledge a few metres down.

We were disappointed not to find South East Aven rigged, but it was useful having two ropes on the Big Pitch.

Sorry about the ambiguity.
We will be derigging stream flood bar alternative on Friday morning (and small mammal).
From Friday afternoon access to main chamber will be restricted as we will be dismantling (aim is last non-crew out by 5pm).
Bar will be removed Friday. Marilyn will be left.

Hi

I was hoping to do Small Mammal via White-wotsit to main chamber on Saturday:
a) I assume from above that everything is de-rigged
b) Am I "allowed" to do this as I can't book on CNCC but sort of assumed it's open season during winch weeks
