27th January 2012 - Tony Brocklebank
Fridays dig was aborted when blizzards arrived at Newby Cote thirty seconds after we did and reduced visibility to about two feet.
Returned Sunday with Big Steve and Simon Latimer. Tent worked well in Arctic conditions, although fingers and toes didn't. Four snappers exposed more of the hole we found last week. Although the top is only about twelve by six inches it's getting bigger all the time and is draughting, so it looks as though we are in the top of something. Return planned with extra strong rock dissolver, probably next weekend.
