Buxton Water Aven, Peak Cavern - 02/01/2007

Written by RobEavis.

Report by Jules Barrett
Divers: Jules Barrett (EPC), Jim Lister (TSG & EPC)
Intention of having a look at the top of Buxton Water Aven. Dived through to Buxton Water Aven and swapped into SRT kits. Both divers prussiked up the fixed rope at the NW end of the aven to arrive on a rubble slope. JB set off up the next section of rope but not finding this section of loose rock wall to his liking, changed over to descent and both divers returned to the dive kit in the bottom of the aven. It is difficult to avoid disturbing some very loose rock whilst prussiking up here and neither diver plans an immediate return to this part of Peak Cavern.
