REPORT

West Kingsdale System

April 2006 - Tony Brocklebank

Simon Dillon, Allan Berry, Neil Garrard and Tony Brocklebank

We had an interesting day Sunday. Headed into Valley Entrance with a view to showing Simon, Allan and Neil how to use snappers, thinking we'd fire one or two off for show but we ended up taking six or seven foot of wall out of a slot on the right just before Cascade Inlet, using just six snappers, to reveal a narrow passage dropping gently away for ten or twelve feet and possibly trending off down and right. Using two at a time about a foot above each other is giving a comfortable working passage and a big pile of bits of rock.

There's even a Billy's Vision style little hole leading to black space at the end of it!

Years ago I diverted the stream down it in wet weather and it took it happily, without any sign of it backing up, so whilst it is obviously heading towards the sumps you never know something exciting might happen on the way. A return trip is planned by Simon and co. Peter and I may have another look when we get back from Mallorca.

Thanks,

Tony
