Just me and Tav today. On entering the approach passage a strong, cool draught was immediately noticeable. We continued clearing mixed spoil of cobbles and sediment from along the rift to the left of T junction. After the hauling rope had detached itself a couple of times we ceased digging and Tav came up to the end to have a look. In a confused moment I had convinced myself that I could see a way ahead around a massive slab of rock breakdown – only for Tav to point out that I was looking back towards the T junction – must be my age! After a brief discussion about the best way forward it might be a good time to open up the right side of the T junction, the draught does feel fresher, stronger from there.
