My favourite is "duck with a bicycle pump up its arse". This is a passage was a low duck in Northern Vietnam cave. This fantastic name came from our team visiting a cafe in Vietnam where they saw a duck ( dead) with a person inflating it using a bicycle pump . Don't ask me why he was doing this but we did find it amusing hence the passage name. Mick Nunwick I believe came up with the name.

You blow up a duck when making Peking Duck or similar to make the skin crispy. It allows the fat to melt away. I’ll see if it’s in the Mary Berry Aga cookbook, she’s hard core.

Whilst strolling on the 'Boro today I found myself pondering on some of the names in the GG system. Can anyone remind me what the back story is behind the name "Anagram Crawl"?

Apparently the original explorers were trying to create a passage name out of their initials and failed, so took the easy way out.
