I didn't make it in the end. In future if I want to do a mid-week trip further west (to me) than Wiltshire remind me of my least-favourite 'joke':

Highwayman: "Your money or your life!!" ...I show them my ID badge... "Aha! You work for Siemens! You have no money and you have NO LIFE!"  :(

shame walrus it was a good trip. How about you arrange Emma Green Chalk mine for an evening trip?

Myself, joker and Bob duly arrived and went for a scamper down HLIS at about 19:30hrs. As I have have done this trip 3 or 4 times in the last two weeks I happily zoomed up and down looking at stuff and getting dirty, everything was easy. A hole appeared in my over suit ass so my furry got a bit mucky and I got wet.

Saw the bones....

Cheers guys.

Yes I did drink before caving.... A Coke..

shame, you missed a good trip, joker, DP and myself up to see the bones. I'm sore now and i can remember where i left my knee pads, that's one of the worst pub crawls in the country!

Next time you go in The Hunter's Lodge Inn Sink
D.P. you wanna go down Pewter pot,
excellant down there.
When Treemonkey & I did it we went equiped with s.r.t. but Mister JRat who more or less accompanied us said just use the ladder, which is wot we did, had to strip off all metalware to get down the tight slot, much easier coming back up
but still snug!!!

Pewter pot is not completely rigged at the mo, there is a rope down there for abseiling, but the rub points are far too bad for prussiking, the ladder coiled at the head of the pitch is too short, the bottom ladder having been broken and we can't get the krab holding the top one off (time for a hacksaw trip methinks)

I need to get mine done too. Time for a trip to Warmbac I think. I can't be bothered to fart around trying to repair it.

Funnily enough I ripped the bum in mine at exactly the same time - though in different caves.

Spooky.

It's pretty much a free climb with maybe a jammer on a rope for backup/psychological reassurance.

Twiglet - be aware the landowner likes to know who's on her land. She's ok, but likes to know.

Thanx Hughie, I think her phone number is in the guidebook but I expect axbridgecaver
knows it anyway so I will make sure one of us rings her the day before.
