Not been down Thrupe lane for some time so decided to give it a go on this particularly busy mendip weekend. Route-finding was no real problem thanks to excellent description from Mike Wilson. Down to Atlas pot, the descent of which was on very dodgy worn out bolts and under a lot of water. Followed the passage ata the bottom to the sump before returning.

Aim of the trip was to dive sump 2. We went to sump 2 via the standard tourist route (apart from Crispin & Kev who went down pulpit pitch). Once at sump 2 I dived on a base fed line through into a small flooded chamber, airspace could be seen but not reached, from here I went feet first down a 45degree descending tube that was partially full of very fine silt (Sand). This soon pinched to a close and a return was made.
