This is the top of the 110 ft shaft in Bar Pot in the Gaping Gill cave system. I am putting an expansion bolt in the wall so we can attach a rope to it in order to abseil down.

The rock is as slippery as glass and my muddy boots certainly don’t grip much, and should I have slipped the ‘cows tail’ rope attached to me wouldn’t have stopped me from falling.

You get a big bruise from a 110 ft fall onto rocks!
