Lnrc-questions-
« on: September 13, 2021, 11:23:00 am »
So we yesterday visited lnrc are trip aim was to reach sump 2 , their was 2 party members myself &  a mate I have only done Swildons , gb , bridge cave prior to this trip and he has only Done Swildons upper series .

We arrived At the site entered the cave at 7.30 and set a 2.30 call out due to both are phones showing black rain clouds/heavy rain for 2pm are aim was to be out for 12 . Then pop in bridge to show my mate quickly  .

The trip went extremely well we went in down tributary passage around mud hall , back up to sump 1 , it required  a second look to see the air gap in the first duck being a low experience team I thought this was a sump until I got the survey out for the first time  :lol: had a lovely trip down the canal into the bouncing boulders hall pot1 & 2 , skipped the wet loop on the way for now we wanted to tackle this head on on the exit,  we carried on down the main water course completed both the other ducks once we figured out these are not sumps and we wouldn’t drown ! And reached sump 2 , after a 5 minute break we started are exit  we took as much of a different route as possible , we attacked the wet loop head on and tried many crawls in the water courses under the large boulders, at junction chamber we followed this to the canal by pass and this lead us the standard outbye route . We manage to get out absolutely knackered at 12.15  ;D

A few small questions on my trip .
The cable that is in the bouncing bolder hall all the way to sump 2 what is this for ?

The cave itself in full flood does this block it completely of from the mud hall upwards or the sand chamber upwards .

With people knowing are rough skill level what would you recommend next for us for another wet cave we loved the water in this one “Non srt “Wales again or mendips is fine .

I think last of all if I haven’t forgotten any has anyone got a picture of the river in a heavy flood we was curious as what it looks like not being local .

AFAIK: The cable links through to Bridge Cave and is used in rescue situations for diver support.

I saw this cable at the rescue point in lnrc it starts in bridge a bit before the sump , is their a rescue point beyond sump 2 in lnrc then?

Yes really loved it it’s not a easy trip getting around the hole place fast ! , when you stand at the bridge Paul outside looking up river to lnrc the water disappears after it into what I guess is bridge cave , I am assuming this is the water sauce for bridge cave is this part not dive able I see it’s completely un marked on the survey . If you don’t understand where I mean I shall try to explain again

If in flood go in via top entrance. You can still use canal bypass and get into genesis series etc

I reckon you'd enjoy Stoke Lane if you've not been before, or go and see a bit more of Swildon's.

I remember when a scout group went into Brige Cave, one of the little buggas got separated from the group, freedived the dump into LNRC, found nobody freedived back and met the rest of the group, finished the trip none worse off!!!

The cable is used for comms which could be for diver support but is also to give a communication link to any trapped group
