plateau - Prospecting beyond FGH and GSH

Mon 07 Aug 2017
Philip Sargent

  • GPS track recorded for whole walk (used Brendan’s GPS)
  • Altitudes done (GPS) for FGH and GSH
  • 3 reasonable holes found

#1 ‘Delicate Bridge Hole’: near skipole, rigged from natural and steelpole section to snowslope, 40m. Tagged. [Adam and Corin returned to this the next day and crapped it out).

#2 and 3: three big holes and pit, see survey notes. [WALLET?]

[Editors note: Adam managed to mislay all the notes of this trip, including the numbers of the tags made and left in the caves; and the notes were not found on the 2018 or 2019 expos despite looking for them. They never went near a wallet apparently.]
