The last cave to rig for the BCA AGM was Alum Pot South East route and the Long Churns.
We walked up to Alum entrance with 2 tackle bags each. Damian quickly got the South East route rigged off the 2 trees, then I followed down - what an amazing place to abseil into, stunning! I made sure that I had a good look around and took it all in.
We then rigged into the bottom and had a look at the final pitch from Diccan were the water fall was in full flow! I went to take a look at the sump whilst Damian started to Prusik out to the surface.
When we were both out we walked over to Diccan entrance to start rigging the Dolly Tubs pitches. Once at the bottom, I took over to rig the last section down to the bridge. So, if you go down these ropes perhaps give them a good safety check haha.
BCA AGM pre-rigging, mission accomplished!

Cavers - Damian Weare, Phil Hawcroft

Great rigging by Phil, who makes an excellent learner. Let's give him as much practice as possible over the coming months.
