258 - Bipedal Traverse Series part II

Sun 02 Aug 2015
Pete Talling

Pete continued the traverse - with a very nice foot ledge - very nice. Eventually after 13 bolts and two naturals the traverse was finished. For a worrying moment there looked like no way on. But a 3m climb down a tube, round the corner, and a 3m climb up reached a big (~5m x 3m) tube above. To the left is a muddy descending tube (Ben's pitch). To the right we did a short climb down into a chamber. Roxy then spotted a walking sized phreatic tube heading down to south. Very pretty and good draft. After 100m it opened up but unfortunately ended in a very drafty choke. SPONGE MAIDENS. Back at first chamber, Pete climbed into two more great A leads. Good day.
