25th August, and it’s my 64th birthday!

Vince, Roz, Duncan, Nick, Jake and Tav.

We split into two units, Tav and Jake went to dig the “top o’ pit”, the rest of us headed to “23 and a bit”.

The recent wet weather has had a dramatic affect both in and out of the cave, the resurgence was flowing strongly. Throughout the cave there were plenty of drips, the trickling stream was flowing through Chamber 20 and water pouring down the calcite cascades. Very impressive. The climbs down through “23 and a bit” to the dig were wet too.
