Mike and I led a trip while Rich long led another trip. We went in via pulpit which was quite slow as we only had one abseiling kit then down to the sump and back out through by-pass passage.

Extremely high water levels (upper pipe in entrance) but we still made it all the way to Sump9. No major epics which is quite unusual for our diving trips. Sump 7 by-pass was quite sporting as water levels were higher than normal. Once at sump 9 we turned round and headed back out. The way out, after sump 1 was extremely tiring but we eventually made it back to the surface.
