Stream Passage Wades

Stream Passage – Wades (pre-rigged): August 27, 2016

Present: Faye, Denis, Bob

Met at Clapham, hot sunny day, elected to carry our tackle and change at the winch meet. On our way met up with Patrick, Steve and Thomas Warren – three generation of cavers hopefully as Steve and Patrick love young Thomas to follow in their footsteps. On reaching GG we logged in our trip, received our number bands and set off for Stream Passage Pot. A classic trip with large rift pitches and water. 

Order of descent: Bob, Faye, Dennis. Being back marker, I could appreciate the size of the rift passage descent with lights form Faye and Bob. Below, confusion working the route through to Sand Caverns. Bob’s recue cry ‘Follow me” – up and down, back and forth for several minutes, and ‘Yes’ Sand Caverns recognised. 

Steady progress to South East Pot: I started up and Bob and Faye had a natter while waiting for my cry of ‘Rope free’. Once up I usually use Horrocks-Stearn crawl and exit via Bar Pot so for myself to exit via Wade’s was virgin ground which is always exciting. Following ropes and single passage till choice of passages told me to turn back to last pitch and wait for Bob and Faye, they both knowing the exit route . On reaching pitch Bob was just exiting it. H e led off and I followed. 

Choice of passages where I turned round was less then ten metres from final pitch hidden around corner. All out met Steve Thomas and Patrick again on the way home. We logged out of winch camp and set off back for Clapham. Faye and Bob stopped for a catch-up and I set off home. Great trip.
