We went up to the very lovely Dentdale today with the intension of doing the Peril. Didn't start too well as when we got to Dent there was a sign saying the road was closed. we ignored it and got to within 1/2 a mile of the cave before we came upon the closure. As we turned round to retrace our steps we had an encounter with a very grumpy farmer who informed us we were idiots
Back to the village and took the back road on the other side of the valley and managed to get right up the Ibbeth Peril car park. There we met a nice chap who was working on the road repair who was quite interested in the cave. We almost persuaded him to come along with us!. Next we encountered two cavers just returning from the cave who had spent 1/2 an hour clearing the entrance so we had no problem entering the cave.
An enjoyable trip followed. What a lovely cave!. The climb up to the waterfall into the inlet stream was quite sporting. I think yesterdays rain had increased the flow a bit. The climb down into the lower streamway was fun too.
A good day out. Perfect restart after the lock down. I may have a short video. If it turns out I'll post it here.
