A fun sporting trip to Shatter series. As the mud sump is still well blocked up we reached shatter pot by going through the troubles from the landing. The one that caused us the most problems was the last trouble we came to. This was completely sumped but we constructed a makeshift dam and bailed enough water out to allow a small airspace to be found in the roof. This now allowed us to pass the last trouble with only a short bit of free diving. Once in shatter series a few more aquatic ducks were encountered and we was soon down at shatter chamber. No one really knew the way so after a bit of exploring we decided to turn back and head out. Luckily on the way back the troubles were quite dry, as we had set the siphon. A thoroughly good aquatically sporting trip.
