Default Heron Pot and Yorda - Ingleton may 2011 - 02-05-2011, 21:51

Visited with Darwin Dave and AndyJ, big-up to andyJ for doing all the rigging.

Heron Pot, has a very similar feel to it as the crab walk in Giants hole, but with a little more room, or at least for the most part. It's a simple through trip starting up the hill, following the main stream way down to the first of 2 abseils, both rigged as pull throughs meaning we would have to squeeze out of the hole at the end no matter how much water there was, luckyly there wasnt much.

after the first pich, you continue to follow the water to the second, which is a bit higher than the first, then again, follow the water, the roof starts to get lower and lower, untill you are left with a crawl of around 100m, which for the last 5ft is a flat out belly wriggle through water.

really enjoyed this place, it was fun, there wasnt a whole lot of room to get pics of the good stuff, so not many pictures, and the ones i have taken were mainly done hand held with the flash on, so they aint great.

pics.























Then onto yorda, this is more of a verticl cave, we went in at the second pich down the hill to avoid the crawl after the the one at the top of the hill.

After the first short abseil, you are right at the bolts for the second, andy quickly rigged this and down we went, comming to the 3rd.

Looking at all the bolts in the wall i began to wonder what i had let my self in for, after watching Andy spend 40 mins swinging from one bolt to the next to rig a traverce out to the pich, i decided it was probably a bit beyond my ability, andy tried to get me onto the rope, i did the first 2 sections of the traverse and decided if i was to continue i would get stuck on the 3rd and would have to be rescued, so i headed back, SRT'd back out and walked down the hill to the lower chamber, feel a bit of a tit for not doing it, but not as much of a tit as i would of felt if someone would of needed to rescue me.

once in the lower chamber, andy ascended the ropes and derigged it all, i walked out of the big hole in the wall into the sun, which did a good job of drying me.
























and that was that

I didn't take my camera down Heron Pot, thought it would be too much of a pest.

Here's a few of my humble offerings from Yordas.













Sorry it took a while, lost internet connection.
