Good job we was close to home, mines can be dangerous

as for ropes , off top of my head :

dolly tubs - 30m

greasy slab - 20m

bridge - 35m

main shaft - 45m

final pitch 20m

puts you 105m down

I wouldn't mind it, i remember you telling us last time but looking down from the top it doesnt look that high, its only when your stood on that bridge then you realizes how much further to the bottom it is.

smoke me a kipper ill be back for breakfast
