Caving With CYFA Pathfinder Ventures - Bull Pot of the Witches (Yorkshire Dales)

 With: Kev Marsh & CYFA group
Where: Bull Pot of the Witches, Yorkshire Dales
Weather: It has been a very wet 24 hours, see below



As well as holding camps at Blaithwaite House CYFA also run Christian themed holidays throughout the country. I've been fortunate, for the last five years or so, to help the camps staying in the Yorkshire Dales with their caving activities. Yesterday I led a group of six into Bull Pot of the Witches. We've had so much rain in the last 24 hours that there wasn't much option other than to use Bull Pot, with its extensive fossil development - its one of the few venues that doesn't flood in these conditions. We followed the "exposed" traverse to the chimney - the group loved the up close view of the waterfall as it poured into the surface shaft; then we abseiled in down the chimney to the base of the falls & got soaked from the spray; a run around the galleries & climb out provided an adventurous afternoon for the group!!
