It was a nice surprise to see Steve and Phil parked up when we arrived. (Phil didn’t go underground)

After an hour or so chat and catch up the four of us went down the entrance.
We left Steve looking for evidence of the porcelaneous band not far in, he
wasn’t going far.
The three of us went along the Milky Way and up the fixed ropes (what a
thrutch!) to the sideways squeeze and a retreat back down.
More crawling along the Milky Way towards Tri Junction and back to the roof

Dropped in to the Master Cave as Gaz had never been, and “explored” the
passages off the master junction ending up at the bottom of the boulders to
Swinsto Great Aven.

Possibly two and a half to three hours of crawling – lovely!!

Better kneepads required!
