An excellent trip to Dollimores even if it was a bit dissapointing. We were digging the boulder choke at the end where after seeing black space ahead we eventually dug through to it. Upon us all getting into what we thought was new passage some stal tape was spotted. We had actually intersected Testerossa Passage. On the way out Charles took Bea & I to look at Luck of the Draw which was extremely impressive.

With thanks to our hoard of sherpas who helped carry all the kit down to the sump. After an easy walk up the streamway we kitted up and carried all our stuff into the boulder choke to the sump. An excellent dive was had and our sherpas explored waterfall series. On the return Mike took the others around the flood escape while I carried the kit the short distance out to the entrance.

A fairly easy carry walking down the OFD streamway to reach Dip sump. I dived to thirds which also corresponded with being cold and wanting to turn around.
