On the 28th March 2010 I will be sat on a beach in Goa, India. Regretably, unless someone can pick me up (and collect my SRT gear), I won't be able to get there

Quoted from Wikipedia-

Lost John's Cave is the most extensive cave system on Leck Fell, North Yorkshire, England. With its four major vertical routes (Old Roof Traverse, New Roof Traverse, Dome Route, and Centipede Route) it is a popular place to practice SRT because of the opportunity for exchange trips. Also it can be safely visited on wet days because many of the pitches can be rigged out of the water.

All routes on Battleaxe Streamway. From here the usual route is to shuffle along Battleaxe Traverse at a high level, protected by rope, until the canyon becomes too wide, and descend a safe distance from the water. From here a short passage leads to Groundsheet Junction where the Leck Fell Master Cave is entered.

Upstream leads to Lost Pot, Lyle Caverns and a second entrance from Boxhead Pot.

Downstream leads through several neck deep pools past several inlets, including one from Rumbling Hole to a sump which after 800m connects to Pippikin Pot.

..... and I was told this was a DRY trip. I don't think that is particularly funny in light of the alarming number of cameras I manage to drown - that would have been another one.

What happened the last time Murf said "Its a dry walk-in, walk-out cave" ?

Our illustrious Captain has said it will be dry but I have heard those stories before .......

I am putting a wet-suit inside my dry-suit inside my oversuit and bringing a waterproof, shockproof camera in a waterproof, shockprook case and then I am staying in the car.

cheers cheers cheers
