Ice Flow Tunnocks

Mon 16 Aug 2010

To strongly drafting hole by Gravity Always Wins/ snow-claute. I started to rig it but bottled it as soon as I dropped past the lip where nobody could check what I was up to so Neil took over. Meanwhile Frank checked out the QMC opposite to find it led over a bold bridge across the 60m of Gravity Always Wins to bypass the pitch - surveyed this at the end. Down the main pitch led to a beautiful ice-filled chamber. Hexagonal cracked ice on many walls, ice crystals, really unusual - but bloody cold. Interesting rigging by Neil dropped a second short pitch into a larger chamber with a huge (6m+) high ice/ compressed snow wall. Draft probably from here but it would be hard to ascend.
