Rope trip

We'd been scampering around in slate for weeks on end. It was time for something else! And something rather specific. We had a new member since a few weeks, and he knew his mines but not yet his rope work. So we decided to do a trip with three vertical pitches.

It was a nice trip! The rope work was a success, the mine was pretty as always, I went somewhere new (up to my armpits in cold water, of course) and we even were out early enough to get a pint. That hadn't happened in ages!

Pretty flowstone
