Visited with Nikkorn, Root, Rubby, Andyb and Gareth.

As soon as I saw the photos of this place from previous trip reports, I had to see it! This was just incredible especially the bat tunnel which was so photogenic, I nearly got over-excited. We sat in it for ages just clicking our fingers and making strange noises to hear the echoes.There is no graffiti anywhere apart from the occasional arrow and there's a surprising number of "artifacts" to look at.

Thanks everyone for another great night!
