Jake only had surface gear with him, so the decision had been made, I was going underground. Not far underground though, just to the bottom of the entrance.
About thirty loads of rock were loaded and hauled out to the surface. The entrance cleared, the lid was replaced and secured. The rest of the session was spent adding the rocks to the retaining wall, and standing back to consider just, how much spoil has been removed from the cave in the past year or so.
A mellow evening, time for the pub.
