In truth, not really an SCG trip as it was me, Chris B (from our Montenegro Exped Gang) and Laura T just doing a Sunday morning string jolly - the entrance was a tad wet, with water flowing straight into the entrance shaft, so we furtled with a dead tree branch and got some of the water to flow into an upstream sink hole, reducing the amount landing on our heads as we abbed in - then into Railway Series and down Wuthering Heights and Lateral Aven, rigging Ledge Traverse and Pitch before running out of time (due back for lunch); did a quick scoot out, cutting out and bagging up the shonky ~27 year old tat rope (long overdue for removal) and then getting a return soaking up the entrance. A bit of fun was involved in locating Chris who had gone for an expeditionary wander down the Old Wells Road instead of towards daylight but he was soon located!

TLS is a great cave - really ought to go here more often! - in fact, I shall jolly well do exactly that! :-)
