Trip Report. Eldon Hole.

A trip report from Rob Nevitt.

Peak Cavern Trip. 17/3/18

Two trips were run in to the Peak-Speedwell system. One to the White River Series, the other to the Peak Streamway and surrounding passages with two novice cavers.
Here are short trip reports from each.

Mistral Pot

Link Pot trip was deferred to Mistral Pot after some entry issues in what was a very tight entrance.
A group of 5 explored as many of the passages as we could given the new restricted timeframe but seems like we couldn't find the right way on.
Here are some pics of the trip

Oxlow Caverns

A great turnout by 10 club members on what was a cold snowy winters day.
All 10 members reaching the bottom with 3 going into West Chamber whilst 3 venturing further to the end of Pilgrims Way.
As usual a good workout followed by a good pint at the local.  
Here are the better pics from today
