CUCC 1980, 1987

Underground Description

Horizontal entrance at base of small cliff at head of dry valley, leads over peaty infill to a pitch head. Cross first hole and descend second, 30m to large chamber. To left is unsurveyed inlet ending too small, while to right is head of very steeply descending phreatic-tube-like pitch of 15m vertically (20m+ of rope). This is a little thrutchy to start, but opens out, and ends in a short climb.

A further 15m pitch follows, hanging clear of a wall made up mainly of boulders. A way on across the head of the final pitch appears too tight. Hole in floor is last pitch, of 33m, which has a boulder 10m high in it, and you can descend either side. Draught is lost into a small passage which you could reach by bolting, but it seems a little pointless.

There is a 1987 extension, but I can't make much sense of the logbook description.

Scanned survey notes



The 1987 logbook suggests we changed this to 87b and the cave that had mistakenly been numbered 88, called 87b on this site, we called 87a, so we had better look into the labelling at the entrance 87a and put an 87b metal tag just inside 87b in the stogerweg.
