REPORT

Mendip and Swildons Short Round Trip

18th November 2012 - Thomas Howard - ST53125131

In addition to Nigel's 'Mendip and St. Cuthbert' trip report I thought I'd add the parts he unfortunately missed. On Sunday the 18th November after a good night in the Hunters at J Rats digging award myself, Ali Smith (Tacklebury) and Sam Drake went down Swildons, a classic mendip cave and possibly the most popular within scout groups and schools. We did what's called the 'Short round trip' which involves no SRT at all but an excellent mixture of crawling, ladder pitches, climbs, general fannying about in water, 4 ducks and 1 very short but roped sump. This trip, none of us were feeling too good due to me having bruised hips and chest (Long story - Squeeze box), Ali being hungover and Sam having not been underground for several months but we all managed it in good time and returned to the Wessex for cheese on toast and a brew before the cast of thousands slowly disappeared and we made our way home.

I would definitely recommend a trip to the Mendips, shall be my request for a club trip next year (if not two).

Tom.
