    Echo Falls

    An excellent find by Stepping Lightly this one :thumb

    We were in the area later in the week so stopped by for another mooch, despite it being only a small system it had all the potential for a decent drain

    3 falls, a decent sized outfall, plywood manholes and enough RCP to shake a stick at... Oh wait :rolleyes:


    We started at the Outfall, which was covered in slippery moss, a quick climb and we were in

    The first real feature was some Stone Blocks in a decent sized chamber, usually a sign that there would be some serious flowage in here :eek:

    The ever increasing hole in my wellies failed me again as I stepped into the 2ft of water

    The RCP took a sharp left and continued on around 100 yds before reaching an Inspection Chamber

    In the distance could be heard a loud roar, we continued upstream until we reached the Second of the 3 Falls

    A ladder took us up to the top of a larger chamber to the Falls

    After grabbing a few shots, we climbed across and headed up the RCP, which zig-zagged upstream, passing 3 further Chambers along the way

    Eventually daylight and then this... The 3rd Falls

    [​IMG]


    We climbed out here at the Infall and made our way back out above ground
