8th January 2016 - BPOTW

With not having been caving in a while, we decided a trip into Bull Pot of the Witches would help us brush up on our SRT skills without having to walk too far.

After descending the entrance pitches we took a little while to look at the waterfall coming down from the open pot before heading back underground.

With having left the maillons in the van, we fortunately found a maillons hanging on each of the initial bolts. When these ran out, scavenging every krab we had on tackle bags and our harnesses finally saw us reach the bottom of the pitches.  The streaming below looked wet, even for a streamway, so after a look in the Long Gallery, we returned back to the open pot.

We then planned to have a look at the Gour chamber, but could we find the way!?  We did notice a hand line though disappearing into the top of the chamber and once again we found ourselves in passageway we'd never visited, BPOTW never fails to surprise.

The Inn at Barbon never fails to provide a great welcome and a warm fire either.
