Loser Plateau - Surface work

Sat 17 Aug 2002



Earlier that same day ... looked at shaft in corner, close to awkward climb, just before 40A on route from Bunter's Bulge. Chokes at bottom, but tube off shelf just below entrance could be pushed with a small amount of digging - good for a lazy afternoon.

Mark spotted a shaft close by, even nearer the path. Rigged a Y-hang off 2 naturals and descended. Chokes at -16m. Also found very small hole directly above 40a - small stones dripped in sometimes fall through into shaft behind bivvy, and there's a vocal connection to the bivvy. Hole could probably be enlarged as it seems to be surrounded by soil.
