More Group Caving: Upper & Lower Long Churn Caves (Yorkshire Dales)

With: Kevin & CYFA Group
Weather: Dry for last 36 hours but water levels still moderate
Where: Upper & Lower Long Churn Caves; Selside, Ingleborough; Yorkshire Dales

Doctor Bannisters Hand Basin, Upper Long Churn Cave
Another good day with a group of 12 campers from a CYFA camp staying in the Dales.
We did a full traverse of the Upper & Lower Long Churn system (just missed out the "slot" and "cheese press". Our journey started with an assisted hand line entry via Dr Bannister's Hand Basin (some took an early swim here!!) followed by a wander through Upper Long Churn to the middle entrance where we chose to abseil down the waterfall. On into Lower Long Churn where most fell victim to either or both of Double Shuffle or Plank Pool's - exit was via the Diccan Pot crawl. Those who weren't already soaked made amends by crawling round in the beck at the exit - all good!!
