Well, nearly Wednesday. Gentle trip down a pretty dry Heron
Pot, taking the “traditional” route. Pretty dry, that is, until the canal and
wet crawl, and the exit. Back up to the entrance (via the surface) and down
again to retrieve the ropes, thereby saving Fay’s not-quite-waterproof watch
from a second immersion.
Fay gallantly went down to the re-belay on the second pitch.
Having de-rigged the belay, a slightly surprised Fay then realised that she was
still in DOWN mode and wanted to go UP… Nothing a few fiddles with prussikers
and descendeurs didn’t solve.
And out. Might like to look at the High Level route
