Descent (183), April 2005

Pleasures of the Palm

Inlet 7 in Notts II has drawn the attention of northern diggers, even though the size of the passage at the head of Oliver Lloyd Aven was perceived as ‘unimpressive’. However, a push, a squirm and the realisation that it was impossible to turn back so they might as well press onwards, has produced a breakthrough into Pleasures of the Palm.

Illustrated Walls

Technology, like a rolling stone, never stands still. Neither does caver ingenuity. Combine the two and what do you have? Superb advances in surveying techniques. Ponder on the concept of entering data in the cave and leaving with everything in place to produce the finished, superbly detailed drawing.
