Water Icicle Survey
« on: February 23, 2021, 07:39:31 pm »
Does anybody have a survey for WICC I could have a gander at?

Searched Google and this site and couldn't find one!

TIA  ;D

There's a simple one here:

Although it's very out of date!
The end is where we start....

That survey's now been added to the PDCI entry too.

The Lathkill Survex file has some up to date squiggles for Water Icicle, the survey in CoPD doesn't have the 2012 extension but has nice detail for the 2009 extensions.

Having been down there I find it an interesting place, big passages which are isolated from other systems but which must link to as yet unseen by human eyes passage and then to who knows where.

There are several on-going digs involving various OCC members. Two are heading downwards (The Elevator, and Faith/Hope/Charity), and two horizontal (Oh No! Choke, and the choke at the end of Urchin Passage). The Elevator and Oh No! Choke have both had a lot of work put in, but frustratingly neither haven't produced any results yet. They're both on the back burner for time being, but the intention is to pick them up again at some point. Faith/Hope/Charity will hopefully see more work this year. The end of Olympic Stroll had a bit of work done early on, and there is a plan to looking at this again.

I've wondered where the choke at the end of the north passage goes, looking at the surveys it points roughly the same direction as the end of Urchin and Olympic Stroll

Yes, definitely heading in a similar direction. I get the impression this is a downstream passage, with the roof slowly lowering until the floor is met. I think John Beck did a projection of the this passage many years ago, and it headed towards a shallow valley about 300m away.
