Well we’ve submitted all the materials required to Descent Magazine now, so I’ll update this section with snippets of the breakthrough article whenever it’s published (next month I think). In the meantime work is still ongoing in the Shannon Cave, and this weekend will see a humungous effort towards surveying the new extension (hopefully to Grade 5 level). We’ve gathered some additional workhands from England and hope to get the majority of it surveyed on a LONG trip tomorrow. Unfortunately I’m gigging, so can’t make it! Otherwise I would definitely have been well keen to spend 16 hours down a cave taking readings and noting down measurements. Oh yeah.
Meantime I’ve uploaded Damien’s photos of last weekend’s trip here.
