After a few of cups of tea and a few changes of plans we finally opted for Diccan Pot since the weather was recently quite wet but dry on this day. A perfect recipe for great, sporty conditions in Diccan. Josh, a permanent resident at YSS, also joined which helped with the tackle :)



We quickly packed the ropes, paid obligatory pound at Selside farm, got changed in relatively nice weather and off we went. Despite a few Keth's attempt to push us to rig, he had to rig all the pitches. But I'm sure he liked it :) I particularly enjoyed his swinging in one of the last pitches to catch a spit for the next rebelay. The conditions were quite wet and very drafty so it was better not to hang around anyway. After a quick look at the sump pool, we climbed towards the daylight at the bottom of Alumn. Being cold, we quickly set off. I was priviliged to derig and to enjoy some swinging too.

A great trip in such conditions and it was good to be back beneath the Yorkshire Dales after some time! Thanks Keith and Josh for the company :)
