Love the one with Garlands lit from below. The crab walk is quite an experience isn't it! This was the first cave I ever did. Have a look at P8 (Jackpot) outside Castleton if you're after another. Got a few more pitches in.

P8 can be VERY wet. We had a go at it last December and gave up at the bottom of the first pitch. It was bloody freezing, I mean so cold I was beginning to lose co-ordination.

to be fair, if we're going to do many more caves, we need some decent waterproof clothing, been lay in a foot of water yesterday trying to squeeze between rocks only 18" apart wasn't a whole lot of fun.

been completely piss wet through wasn't the end of the world, but trying to get pictures while there is a whole cloud of steam comming off you is hard work.

I wear a wetsuit and still get cold! They're worth it even if they are a bit restrictive for movement.

The 'steaming' effect can be used for effect in photos though, particularly if you have a steaming person in the pic and between you and your light source so the light picks up the steam and looks a bit other-worldly.
