I've suggested a new date: - Dec. 1st. (its the earliest I can do). It doesnt matter what time of the year it is, as the underground temp. is fairly constant; as long as its been relatively dry and no heavy rain or showers are forecast on the day.
The trip in mind is 'Calf Holes' nr. Horton-In-Ribblesdale and its easier and shorter to cater for some who missed out in September. There's an 11m. entrance pitch, which we could abseil; other than that its a mixture of walking, wading, crawling and a bit of scrambling (and you exit out of Browgill cave, rather than having to return). There isnt the kit hire as we had before but good headtorches should last for the duration of the trip (2.5 - 3.0 hrs.). Here's a few ideas of whats on offer:
and while we're there we could have a look into Birkwith cave - just a 5-min. diversion - on the way back if you have'nt had enough:
Be aware that both caves respond to heavy rain, so I'll keep a good eye on the weeks weather .For last minute queries my no. is[masked]
