Balcony - Frozen North

Tue 05 Jul 2016
Sioned Haughton

After finding a promising looking snow slope on a previous trip with Becka and Julian, and an unsuccessful prospecting trip to identify the entrance from the surface, Andrew convinced me to accompany him on a trip to dig our way out from the inside. It was very cold and unsuccessful. Andrew finished off the 55m rope that had been left from the previous trip getting to the top of the slope where a further few metres of digging in the snow didn't get anywhere. Another 17m rope was used to traverse from a rock ledge into a passage in the ceiling but that closed down and the rope was left in situ.
