With Roz.

Continued to follow/expand the fissure, on the north-side, at the current end of Merlin’s. Seven holes drilled, upping the ante with a change to the ingredients and adding some oomph. Because of the difficulties drilling some of the holes last week, used a blow-tube to clean-out the holes as I drilled. It went a lot better, although a couple of the holes were a tad awkward. Might have to consider making the approach a bit wider.

Anyway, all went off satisfactory manner, fly-rock was heard. It will be interesting on Saturday to see the results.

Exited the cave into rain, a bit different to last week.
