Has anybody got any details of the break-through in Turbary Pot they would like to share?

Apparently a short climb down through a scaffolded shaft at the bottom of Turbary into the ongoing passage.

Is this beyond the Sumps or a different part of the Pot?

Doesn't sound like much news is forthcoming...

I imagine it connected fairly directly to the Turbary Inlet in Swinsto.  Certainly going to make a new through trip cutting out some of the Swinsto crawl.  Never been up the Turbary Inlet so don't know if that makes it any more desirable.  Fortunately it doesn't connect into 'Misery' the rather dismal passages explored by Martin Holroyd in the 90's.

Anyone know who was involved?

That's certainly what I inferred from Pie Muncher's original reply - straight scaffolded dig in McShea Chamber through the boulders into what was the end of Turbary Inlet. We'll have a look...

Should be a report in next Descent.
