Misty Mountain Mud Mining

My attempt last weekend to complete a bit of cave surveying and have it uploaded onto an overlay of googlemaps was thwarted by lazy university students who were meant to come with us, and (following our actually doing the survey of part of the sump canal in IrebyFell Cavern) an interruption for beer.

The latter is always going to happen on a caving weekend. I don’t know what we can do about it. Our work (the squiggly white passage) showed up three days late.

Then on Monday we went digging with the Misty Mountain Mud Miners in the Easgill System.

Here’s a little video to prove that it was indeed misty and we were mining mud. The scones we ate for tea were pretty horrible, being the cheapest kind that could be bought at the supermarket. The day ended sooner than expected because we hit a rock. They’re going to have to come back next week with some capping equipment.
