Nigel Ball and Dave Shearsmith have a dig in a promising low alcove in the wall of Whirlpool Passage.
Speedwell - Whirlpool
Present: Ann Soulsby & Alan Brentnall
Popped into Speedwell to recce the Whirlpool Traverse but were snookered by the water. After weeks of ankle deep water yesterday’s rain resulted in me being on my tip toes at Pit Props. At least the journey was not completely wasted as we took in a couple of lengths of scaffolding. We then abseiled down to the Bottomless Pit to rescue some hard hats for John Harrison and we were again thwarted as most of them were well out of reach. Never mind plenty of time for completing a few jobs back at the Chapel!
