Time for another caving trip, Iv been wanting abseil Gaping Gill for sometime now, unfortunately the weather has been really bad over the Dales so I didn't fancy abseiling down the main shaft for us to climb back up through a rushing waterfall.

Also Flood entrance was a no go with heavy water throughout the cave system, so Bar Pot it was, after a 4-5 miles walk to the entrance I was already shattered and after a short rest I manned up and done it :D

On with the pictures....

The waterfalls at Gaping Gill, unfortunately we lost light by the time we got in the chamber so we only had torches to light it up, still, I can only describe how amazing this place is, if you go and see it, it will be double from what ever you read on the web.
