Luke working away so just the two of us. I completed the climber climb with the protection of a few bolts, but this unfortunately ended in a choke just 7m shy of a level we’d spotted heading off the main shaft in this general direction. If this connection could be forced, it would offer a dry route down into the lower workings.

We then continued the survey along the cartgate, up and over the collapses. Jon did what he does best and collapsed a route through the choke at the end to allow further exploration. Strangely this soon took a sharp turn right before ending in a forefield. This point is 6m higher than the start of the cartgate, so maybe a route continues to the East somewhere below? Either way, for now the exploration at the bottom has finished, and attention will now be turned towards the levels higher up…
