234 - Hauchhöhle surveying

Fri 23 Jul 2004

Pete + Olly had returned to camp the previous day with tales of caverns measureless to man, and nothing surveyed. So I jumped at the chance to go and practice my survey note-taking, hoping to go on to bolt down the pitches (or rather show Olly how).

However I had somewhat underestimated the amount! Eleven hours later we crawled out, knackered, with 58 legs of survey in the book even ignoring all the oxbows and loops, and more passage still going. (Olly had put one bolt in the pitch before getting caught up in the surveying as well.)
