A very wet sporting trip from Priddy Green Sink through to Swildon's. Priddy Green Sink was generally very wet and the pitches were all very damp but that was just the start of it. We then landed in a fairly high Swildon's Four streamway which we struggled our way up to reach Blue Pencil Passage which had a small stream flowing out of it. It was then onto the round trip and all the normal wet bits were sumped and a lot of bailing and siphoning followed so as we could get to the Swildon's Two streamway. The water was very cold (partially snow melt) and made the sump colder than it had to be. <br> <br>As if all this wasn't enough we then had to free-climb a thunderous 20' pitch as there was no ladder there. <br> <br>All in all a very good, but also quite wet and cold, trip.
