Wed 14 Aug 2002

or 15th

Walked up, investigated 2 holes on left of 40a-> Portal Row route, just past the hole we're fairly sure is 40b. Both descend tot he entrance Thilo says is 40d, emerging high on the right wall. Sketch map:

Trogged down to 40D to check thaey did indeed connect. Looked around 40D area a bit:

Mark suggested the flattish sandy area could be fettled for use as a bivvy - it does appear to be inside the dripline, so might not need a tarp - 40a can get very drippy after prolonged rain.
