    Haha, parenting, such joy, so easy. :scratch: not reached eighteen years yet :-( Anyway, a trip underground is good regardless, LJs and its mix of routes is a fine place.

    Baaaaa…🐏

    That’s one noise I wouldn’t want to hear down Bull Pot, other noises fine though, even if they play on the mind. In fact, even with company on a trip, noises can seem like another caver or group.

    I do wonder if it’s the sort of remoteness of caves, the disconnection from society/people that the brain somehow wants to “hear” other humans?

    Bull Pot is one of the places I did a solo venture years back, along with a jolly down Yordas Pot. Definitely a different experience, makes you think more, still fun though.

    I thought Perfidia was a very long dry crawly passage that ended in a dig rather than connecting to/providing a dry connection to Dale Barn? Ultimately it probably will connect, if people push it enough..

    So, why do people still go there, plenty of other options albeit with a short detour?? :unsure:

    The log book section is the only publicly viewable part of the forum. So this is viewable by non-members and Alex’s statement stands true.
    However: The likelihood of random viewing of this post by the public is of course “very” slim. Therefore the chance of random cavers using abandoned rigging by a lightweight team within the next week is negligible. Worth pointing out though, just in case.

    The metal lid entrance is easy to find using the map in Northern Caves. In the 1991 guidebook it’s the dot under the “ve” of Caverns. I’ve no idea what the dot is under the “ne” of Calamine.

    Without looking at the book, would the second dot be the other (blocked) entrance to Pikedaw?

    Maybe we should really start to explore this area, the limestone seems really thick as it goes all the way up the hill, there has got to be lots of depth potential

    If memory serves me right Wensleydale is made up of the Yoredale series, which is beds of limestone separated by shale and other rock. So not one continuous big block, you won’t get much depth unless there’s a fault that allows water to pass from one bed to another (like at Langcliffe) or the cave follows the dip for a very long way.
    However, the Yoredales support some impressive/long caves – Fairy, Cliff Force, the mazes etc.. miles of passages await the lucky explorer in that neck of the woods… :good:

    We struggled to find FCS top entrance but found another entrance. Didn’t stand out as being anything exciting and despite noting the amusing exit in the report I can’t recall what was so funny about it… :unsure:
