Some of you may be aware that all caving in White Scar Cave is currently suspended due to a 0.4 tonne unstable boulder in the choke behind Big Bertha. CPC are in discussion with the cave owners to agree on a solution to stabilising the boulder in the next few months and our club will be carrying out the stabilisation works. Unfortunately this means that this Saturday’s meet there has to be diverted so I will be coordinating a trip into High Douk Holes (the upstream section of Hardrawkin Pot......simple linear streamway), followed by a through trip from Middle Washfold Cave to Great Douk Cave (has anyone NOT done it??.......shortish crawl in stream into linear vadose canyon with cascades....an easy but super trip). There is a recent rockfall to pass with care near the downstream end. Meet at lay-by above Hill Inn at 10:00. No restrictions on numbers but any car sharing would be useful as the lay-by has become really busy with Three-Peakers over this past year.
