PostSubject: Cabin Shaft - Query   Sat 13 Nov 2010, 2:09 pm

Anyone recognise this shaft from the following description .....

There are 2 (maybe 3) sets of ladders that are not strapped together (they move back and forth when descending them). They go down and down....... About half way down, there looks to be a passage going off behind you - this however is dead. There was water at the bottom of the ladders - we dont go any futher as we wanted to continue along the passage we had started on, so returned back up and eventually ended up at the scaffold pole drop.

Go the main shaft and take a right along a worn stoop passage . Eventually, you get to a traverse - go right at it and carry on. You get to a junction, go left at the junction - it is obvious. Keep going and following what looks to be a worn path. Eventually the wearing stops but we continued going and going down, we exited down through a small hole and drop into this passageway and ahead is the scaffold pole drop with 2 bolts in situ (rope only required, unless bolts/spits now removed).


Shocked

No idea Nick .... the question was asked on another forum and I "copied & pasted" it here in the event one of our members recognised it ....
