To visit the Airbells in Sump 9 and also survey the Swildon's Twelve Sump Pools.' Unfortunately Chris's High Pressure regulator hose exploded at Sump 2 and therefore he had to continue to Sump 9 with only one cylinder.' This then meant I had to go to Sump 12 on my own.' I dived into sump 9 tied off a jump line the far side of the entrance arch and surfaced in an airbell.' An Aural connection was attempted with Chris back at chamber 9 but with no sucess.' I then removed the jump line and continued through Sump 9 looking for other airbells.' Nothing was found until I reached the airbell that links through to the far side of Sump 9.' I then dumped my diving kit the other side of Sump 10 and went to do a survey of the sump pools in Swildon's Twelve.' I then returned to meet Chris in Swildon's 9 and we headed out the cave.
