Kids caving trip. Managed to find the route OK to Gnome passage through the Brickyard. Went too far down Gnome passage before realising we needed to turn off to the left earlier to get to the wedding cake and then the corkscrew climb down to salubrious passage. Kids did really well on the straddling sections along Salubrious Passage. We then stopped for snacks at the Trident and Judge before heading back out the same way.

Awesome trip along the flood bypass route. Water levels were too high for the kids to go in the streamway. All the kids were really great on the wire traverses. We then rigged a lifeline for the ladder climb across the stream passage and the final via-ferrata section. We then went up the olipitical tubes to Pi Chamber, had something to eat then headed bcak out the same way. The kids had a good splash around in Plutos Bath on the way out. Great fun.

Lovely walk along the tramway. Had a few route finding issues in the entrance series. Need to remember that most of the key route finding descions in the entrance are to the left on the way in. Just as you approach the boulder choke the route on is through a hole in the floor which was not immediately obvious, then along a small streamway and into the choke. A upwards climb through the choke brings you into the impressive Baron's Chamber.  We turned around at this point and the exit out was much quicker without any route finding issues.
