    History from Morrisey's Wormhole report:
    Whilst we didn't get to see the workings that Morrisey and his friends did, we got to see pretty much everything else that didn't need rope.

    We didn't get our cameras out until sub level 3

    Next stop was sub level 4
    We went as deep as was safe here, but where beaten back by water
    [​IMG]

    So we went further up to shoot the rest of the level

    But I couldn't resist getting a shot looking down to the water filled incline

    Back up on sub level 2

    We headed back up to sub level 1 and seeing as the map we were using said the ladders down were unexplored (we hadn't cottoned onto Morrisey's report until we were down there) so we thought it would be rude not to have a look.

    We found more workings

    and a back filled entrance adit

    We spotted what I believe to be the wormhole Morrisey went down in his report, I had a quick peek, but without SRT gear it'd be certain death on a stick so I thought I'd leave ith for now.

    All in all we spent a good six hours underground, Walsh and CunningCorgi are great guys and the time flew. Had a great BBQ afterwards and now I'm feeling those six hours :D

    Took a few photos on sub level 4 that I think are cool

    Only notice when I got home that I'd aquired a minor injury whilst diwn there

    Great day out and fantastic pics there - great meeting up with Xan and the kwan too !

    Will stick up a few when I get them uploaded.

    Found out that the adit with all the equipment wasn't up but down. The incline with the blue pool at the bottom - the equipment adit is through there but only accessable when the water level drops. Couldn't have got through it yesterday.

    The worm hole than Xan went down (and probably got the cuts in !) leads to another adit but no equipment. Still have to SRT down though.
