Bull Pot of the Witches
I had just said to Genevieve "Well. If this is it
we will just have to make the best of it and do what we can with Bull
Pot", when a familiar red Landrover bearing Nigel and Jan appeared
coming down the lane.
Thus we were four rather than two and ready for
anything the hole could throw at us. After the recent rains I was
expecting a watery trip having forgotten that much of the system is in
the higher level dry passages.
The water had run off but we did not
quite get to the streamway having insufficient tackle. Partly my fault
as I had been previously been used to doing the lot without tackle.
There were some squeals from above when I had a go at free-climbing the
first pitch, insisting that it all was free-climable. Still, after four
hours we had nearly had enough.
We were getting used to the
intricacies of Bull of the Witches and decided to call it a day, saving
the lowest reaches, and the squeezes towards the superb gours leading
up to the Angels Wing, for another day.
Thanks to Genevieve for bring gear and to Jan and Nigel for turning out as well. We all enjoyed a brilliant day's caving anyway.
