Trip to Alum Pot via Upper Long Churn

Another caving trip, this time we headed over to Ingleborough in search of Long Churn

After kitting up we headed on over to the entrance at Upper Long Churn, stopping by Alum Pot for a look in your holeZ :D


Once we reached Upper Long Churn we rigged a handline down the chute and descended one by one into the large plungepool known as Dr Bannisters

Someone got a soaking... LOL wasn't me ;)





A fair bit of crawling about and negotiating large boulders and free climbing all manner of stuff we headed to Lower Long Churn



Next challenge - 'The Cheese Press'

Absolute no way I was getting through here, infact only the slim one passed through :D


Next up we rigged up for our descent down the 'Dolly Tubs' pitch a 20M abb and we were all soon down, sadly no pictures of this bit as it was far too wet!

We made our way to the viewing platform of Alum Pot - A stunning view


We will return at some point with moar rope so we can make it to the bottom of Alum Pot, thanks for looking :thumb
