Visited with CCM, my first attack at caving and loved it.

Great Douk is a grade 1 cave, although when its 'sporting' it can be a grade 5 (and it was quite sporting indeed lol) so I have been told afterwards. WE didnt complete it as I bottled it about a min from the end due to flat out crawl and water over the head :( - I will return and beat it haha

Location Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleborough
Length 914 metres (2,999 ft)
Discovery first through trip accomplished in 1934
List of entrances
Main (lower)
Little Douk (skylight)
Middle Washfold (main exit)

We entered and exited by main, a greasy 2 meter waterfall climb, passed little Douk and was almost at middle Washfold when it got too much for me. If it wasn't as cold I have no doubt that CCM would have talked me through it, but hypothermia kicks in very easily in these conditions.

Pics from CCM (my camera isnt waterproof or shock proof - although I do have one on the way) - Vids will follow ;)
