REPORT

West Mine

17 January 2010 - ND - SJ8509 7763

The trip was planned for novices and non-members as well as to have a good look around. There were nine of us including one complete novice, Helen, one caver from another club, Jeff and Frank who has recently joined.

We did the normal sort of round trip but with a few twists. Pete and James went across the traverse at Nigel's Nightmare and Helen did the Laundry Chute (with some assistance - but really she loved it). Nigel couldn't get up the Hourglass but James could - that's the difference between 59 and 13.99999 year olds (and he was pushed up, I heard later NJD).

There is a small selection of pictures below which gives a taste of the trip. If anyone wants copies or to see them all, let me know. Anthony also took some pictures during the trip using light painting.
