Simpson's Pot (West Kingsdale)

WARNING

Issued: 19 January 2017

Reports received of a number of ropes that have been abandoned on pitches in Simpson's Pot. Some of these have been reported to be in poor condition, badly rigged, or too short. We would like to remind all cavers NEVER to use in-situ ropes.

WARNING

Issued: 19 January 2017

Valley Entrance must be pre-rigged to enable exit for pull-through trips. Always take several ropes for pull-through trips in the event that some get stuck which could risk stranding between pitches.

WARNING

Frequent rescues due to pull-through trips abseiling into The Pit (sometimes known as Bob's Pit). Ensure appropriate advanced research and check onward route before pulling rope through if in any doubt.
