Balcony - Batteries! finishing off and bag retrieval

Tue 05 Jul 2016
Rob Watson

A day of tidying up loose ends and transporting equipment. Went and rigged Batteries! and surveyed it to a conclusion. About 50m in the book. Ended in a too tight tube heading down. In common with other passages taking water in Balcony there was very little development. We then went and retrieved my tackle bag which required a 15m pitch to be rigged. Y-hang off two naturals (thread and big column) with spike deviation. Another immature clean washed aven. Drippy. Then left the derigged Batteries! rope at Hilti-a-Plenty for rigging that. Bipedal traverse still rigged! Out quickly with drill and bolting kit.
