An exploratory trip to try and see how much of this cave had collapsed. We started of going down Zed-alley but after a short bit of passage came to a boulder choke which we didn't go through because of roosting bats. We then went back to the main chamber and tried to find lads luck but couldn't.

After such a short trip down reads we decided to have a look down rods. At the bottom I found an interesting tight wet crawl, which I thought best tackled with a wetsuit.

Caving: Priddy Green Sink (23-Jan-00)

A thoroughly disgusting slimy cave, but good in the end. We got the first bit over quite quickly because of the smell and muck and it was good to get to RAF chamber which is clean. After that we came to an L- junction we turned left went through a tight squeeze and came to a pitch. Guy said this was the wrong way so we exited the cave. We later found out that straight on was the way to Swildon's.

Yet again more digging in Stocks House this time I was on the surface the whole time winching out and emptying bags.
