East Twin Swallet to Spar Pot

Myself and a friend  were planning a trip to Swildons, but due to unforeseen circumstances on route, had to abandon this plan and look for a shorter trip.

We decided to take a look at East twin swallet.

We parked at the Cafe and made are way up the Combe to the entrance in the East twin valley.

We climbed down into the main chamber and started our decent over the various scaffolding supports which lead to an unusual dig at the bottom of the cave. A lot of effort has been put in to this dig.

we turned at this point and headed into Spar Pot.

We had a fantastic trip in here there's some hanging death here and there but no more than I have experienced elsewhere.

With no survey and not knowing what to expect we climbed into Boulder Chamber and down through the Main Rift, this leads to some short tunnels and climbs, with nothing to go on we followed the draught. Every turn looks like it ends until you push through. We reached the long crawl and crawled halfway along, this is very similar to the Drainpipe but 27m long and coated in Mud!

We turned back at this point and made are way out.

A shortish trip but very enjoyable (Respect required here and there)

Did you go up the tunnel, known as "Better than sex?"
