With Jake.

Although we had talked about it on the weekend, less of a turn-out than anticipated, so didn’t achieve as much as hoped for.

Started capping some of the boulders piled in the Tuck Shop, while Jake busied himself digging at the potential ‘connection’. We thought that an obstructing slab of rock might succumb to capping, but that didn’t happen, the rock proved too thick and solid. I did, manage to get the capping rod well and truly stuck and it required some effort to free it. Decided then, that the rock would require the application of a more persuasive technique and I will return on Thursday evening with the necessary materials.

The bags Jake had filled were hauled to the entrance to be removed on the weekend.
