A bit of a project. Dave
and Gary wanted to get "a collectors piece" as the guidebook describes.
We were going to rig a "maypole" and I was brought on the team for
my supposed skills in climbing. The maypole was made up by scaffolding tubes,
which was already in place a good way in the cave. But we needed the connection
pieces for the project to be a success and Gary had gotten his hands on some
brand new pieces as he was doing his kitchen roof up these days.
Anyway - we had a heck
of a load to carry 5 bags in total with ladders, ropes two bolting kits and
Gary's connection pieces. We arrived in good spirit at the scaffolding pieces
and started setting up the system immediately. Then I was send up as the climber
- pretty festive stuff - have a look at this
drawing to get an idea of what was going on.
