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.
A very enjoyable and demanding trip into Peak today to do the White River series via Block Hall & Ventilator. Neil decided he had to visit Heaven for possibly one last time while I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven 3 times already by then. 4 club club members completed the trip only to emerge into very snowy conditions and the possibility of being snowed in at TSG. 3 made it
home very slowly while one has had to bed down for the night at the TSG.
Here are the better pics.
Dan and Ryan said they had a great time.I included a visit to Ink Sump then offered them a dip into the inviting Lake Sump which they attacked with gusto. Having visited far sump I diverted into the mud crawl(rope climb on left) which connects to squaws junction inlet which they really enjoyed. Looks like they can't wait for the next trip.
