I seconded this trip with Edd leading, taking Peachy the younger, Xavier and Conor on their frist trip underground with SUSS. After some oohing and ahhing at the formations and civilized discussion of speleogenesis, we pottered down to Garlands to peer down from the traverse. From Base Camp Chamber we climbed up into the upper crab walk – some wedging and thrutching later – we made it to the top of a pitch which Edd rigged a ladder on. Edd and I life lined the others, I abseiled down with the ladder then Edd rejoined us after re -rigging it as a pull-through. On the way out we explored Upper East Passage up a climb near the entrance. Call out set: 18:00, out at 16:00.
