Peak Cavern - Showcave

Present: Phil Wolstenholme, Ann Soulsby, Charley Cooley, Simon Jackson & Roberta Pavone.

Had an exiting day up the Krypton Series with Simon stretched to the limit with traverses, free climbs and challenging rigging. Exceptionally good practice but extremely tiring for him.

Phil waited at the beginning of the traverse at the top of the entrance rope to show him where all the ledges where to complete the traverse. Charley was also challenging himself as he is not keen on exposure. This is about as exposed as you can be and in full view of the punters in the showcave.

Present: Wayne Sheldon and Ann Soulsby

The trip was supposed to be Cohesion Crawl surveying but Ann was feeling rough, full of cold again so we decided on an easier alternative which was one of my my backup plans. This trip was continuation of the surveying of the Peak Speedwell System where I am picking up unsurveyed parts of the system; one part of the system being the passages off the Great Cave. These have always been ignored by cave surveyors.
