Wednesday 31st January 2018 Fay, Dennis, Phil
Parker, Genevieve Thompson
After meeting us at Inglesport for breakfast and delivering
kit, Jack bailed out with Man Flu, leaving three of us to head off to Bull
Pot. Fay, Dennis and myself arrived at
Bull Pot Farm where we met up with Phil.
After changing and co-ordinating ropes and bags, we headed
off to the scramble down to the entrance where we were wowed by the fabulous
waterfall cascading down opposite us.
There was a bit of a discussion over the route to get into the cave
system with myself, Fay and Dennis opting for an SRT trip. Whilst we got ready to go down the first
pitch, Phil disappeared to reappear at various points later during the trip –
who knows where he went, but he wasn’t doing an SRT trip as we had all the
For me it was a great trip for practising my SRT skills
which were somewhat rusty, but I got down with the great support as always from
Dennis and Fay. With added crawling and
scrambling we made it to the bottom of the big waterfall from the start of the
trip. We then discovered that Dennis was
no longer with us, although Phil had reappeared. The mystery of the missing Dennis is best
described as “to poo or not to poo”.
When Dennis did re-join us, he kept us all highly
entertained by his wild “dance-moves” across the muddy floor. Photos were taken and then it was time to
turn around and head back out. A fun
trip for all.
