With Jake, Nick and Tav.

Tuesday evening’s effort had been a success, the way ahead blocked, temporarily, by a pile of fractured rock and gravel.

I began the task of clearing the debris out of the way, Nick was at the bottom of the slope loading the skip to Tav, who was at the top. Jake was on the haul and shuttle, stacking the rocks and bags in the entrance ready for removal on Saturday.

Some of the fractured rock required a bit of persuasion, but most of it was moved out of the way to give a view of the potential way forward. There is still quite a bit of loose rock and gravel on the floor to be shifted out of the way, another job for Saturday.

At the end of the session, both Nick and Tav came forward to have a look, the consensus was, we need to dig some more.

Another busy Saturday session for us.
