Ogof Hesp Alyn Trip Report.

A brief note on the trip.
Seven of us were underground. We made it to sump 1. Standout feature of the trip -  MUD! Lots of it from the bottom of the pitches to the sump. An interesting, but physically demanding cave. Someone has been coerced/persuaded to write a fuller report for the next edition of the newsletter.

Some pictures and video from Des here.

Calf Holes and Birkwith Cave. Trip Report.

The meets list said Ibbeth Peril, however the weather was not looking kind for this trip. Mark K had been up the previous day and taken some video of the amount of water going over the waterfall beside the entrance to Ibbeth Peril 1. We reviewed this over breakfast at Inglesport, but decided to travel over to Dentdale and take a look anyway. Viewing the volume of water ourselves decided it and we resolved to go to Calf Holes instead. Driving from Dentdale to Ribblesdale we met a convoy of Minis travelling in the other direction.

White Scar Cave

A trip report from Des Kelly

Always a pleasure going on the White Scar trip as you get to see the stunning showcave as well.

Deaths Head Pot to Notts II

Six of us underground on Sunday. Roy did Deaths Head Pot and prussicked out. The rest of us carried on with the aim of finding the connection to Notts 2. The climb down the dig in the base of the Deaths Head main chamber had a rope in place, as did the short pitch down in to the Master Cave from the Deaths Head inlet, making the through trip practical, assuming we could find the way!

Titan Streamway Trip Report

A successful trip along Titan Streamway on Sunday. Eight of us in total underground. Roy came to the Event Horizon with us and prussiked out. The scale of the Titan shaft only becomes apparent when there are plenty of cavers spread up and down the 80m upper pitch and across the fixed tension traverse to the streamway, lighting it up. The Titan Streamway needed some combined tactics and handlines to get us all up the cascades. A beautiful clean washed passage, but with very little water flowing.
