Default Croessor - Bridge Recovery - 01-11-2010, 14:07

Well the time finally came about and after weeks of planning we finally headed up to Croessor kitted up to the nines

The Bridge was originally installed as part of the rigging for the through trip but after a roof collapse about 3 years ago the bridge was lost to the depths.......until now

We managed to drag the bridge to dry land so that we could straighten it and inspect any damage



We then winched it over to the far side and started to bolt it back into place before re cabling some of the tie lines



Once finished there was time for a team shot before heading back up the ropes and out into the darkness
