Peak Cavern - NCC Shafts Series

A small party of four (Lee Langdon, Ade Pedley, Christine Wilson and myself) went into NCC Shafts with the intention of sorting out a better rig for the 2nd pitch. When this pitch was originally bolted, the few bolts which were available left the rigger with a long tension traverse along a gulley, a fall from which might have had serious consequences. The new solution is a high deviation from a P32 above and part way along the gulley which lands the caver nicely within a couple of metres of the rebelay.

On Saturday, Phil and I had arranged to be digging in JH, however......Due to the rather heavy precipitation (combined with the fog I encountered on my journey to the Hut), we decided instead to have a wander into Peak and elected to have a look at the NCC Shafts as I had only been as far as Galena Chamber previously. We passed Irene in the Great Cave (who was busy with a group of customers) and made our way down the slide and into the cave "proper".
