Swildon's Hole, Sump 2 - Wed 22 Jun 2022

Andy Sparrow, David Cooke, Lawrence Wilson, Peter Sanders, Seán Tidey, Will Puddy, Yvette Jordan

Met 19:30 on the green in heat and sunshine, congratulations to Will on the birth of his Daughter. All glad to get into the cool of the cave and out of the horse flies.

Various routes taken down to the Water Chamber, I took the wet way to cool off, however so dry didn’t help much. Arrived at the 20 which Andy rigged and belayed all down. Moved quickly down the stream way with a diversion to admire Barnes Loop. Got to Sump 1 to find an air gap, all swiftly through and continued to Sump 2, this had an air gap to the bell, but none of us fancied a look.

Returned via the stream way to the Water chamber then various routes out.

An excellent trip and Yvette’s first time down Swildons. Got to the Hunters at about 22:20
