A trip into St. Cuthberts with Simon's work colleagues who have all been caving before. Abseiled down Pulpit Pitch, followed the streamway down to the sump by-pass and then on down to Gour Hall and Sump 1. We then headed back out via Plantation Junction > Rabbit Warren > Railway Tunnel > Cascades > Strike Passage > Curtain Chamber > Boulder Chamber > Pillar Chamber > Mud Hall > Wire Rift > Ledge Pitches. We then collected our rope from Pulpit Pitch and headed up Arete Pitch.
<br>Everyone was getting a bit tired when we got back to the entrance rift and Richard slipped at the bottom and bruised his foot. I then put a lifeline down the rift to assist in getting everyone out safely.
<br>All in all everyone enjoyed the trip and were very impressed with the formations.
