Present: Jack, Phil, Fay
To have a look at the high level route towards County. Bit a of a hiccup at the entrance when we found someone else had rigged the pitch (we had the permit!). But there was enough room to sort out our own rope – they seemed to be abseiling through as they hadn’t bothered with the rebelay at the ledge, opting for a slight rub instead. Hmm.
Off into Kath’s Way and then the mud and boulders (and holes in the floor!) to Fall Pot. Down the rope (new since last Autumn, we gathered), up the other side. More m and b (and h i t f) to Stake Pot, and another rope leading down, across and up. Bob’s Boss and Painter’s Palette for piccies, then call it a day at the start of the rope for Scylla and Charybdis.
Back out to see the other party’s rope being retrieved. We followed. 4 hours.
