An opportunity to show Kyle what Swildon's is all about and demonstrate the difference from Goatchurch! Water levels were ok, unfortunately nothing like last week when I omitted to drag the camera along.

We headed down over the entrance rift, through the zig zags dropping down jacob's ladder into the short dry way, a lifelined twenty, down through the inclined rift to sump one which was nice and foamy again, Kyle was very keen to give it a go but not for his first visit.

We met some lads who had just taken a gander at barnes loop and were heading back to play around on the old fourty.

We headed back out via barnes loop, wet way and up through the entrance rift.

A lovely trip, I think Kyle anjoyed himself, he certainly didn't take much rocking in the van on the way home.
