2nd February 2013

With Alex and Tav. Very different weather to last week, a glorious morning although there was a chill in the air. Initially the idea was to batter the two rocks at the end with the sledge and remove them. Got one out of the way then the sledge handle snapped and that was that. Resorted to shifting more sediment and rocks from the end. The mud today was particularly glutinous and there was a pool of water in every position that I needed to lie. With three of us digging the spoil was shifted to the the base of the entrance and then relayed up the shaft and out to the surface.

Hunter’s for quick refreshment before departing keen to watch the opening games of the Six Nations Championship.
