Mid-week trip into Hallowe’en Rift for a change. One of my best digging mates from the past has come from Columbia to the UK for a couple weeks with his family before heading to France on holiday. Decided to take Pete [Bolty] to enjoy the delights of HR, being on the tall side he really appreciates low muddy crawls. Cleared Sunday’s spoil from the end of the tube back the base of Witches Cauldron and then to the bottom of the entrance before heading to the Hunter’s for refreshments and reminisences of some epic caving trips and discoveries of the past such as Coventosa pull-through trip, Lechiguilla, Daren Cilau and, of course Ogof Draenen.

PB seemed to be suitably impressed by the prospects in Hallowe’en Rift and requested photos from beyond the slab!
