Whirlpool Rising Dive

Sunday 31st May 2015

With members of SUSS and the DCC we carried diving equipment into Whirlpool Rising in Speedwell Cavern on Sunday for Rob Middleton and Ben Wright. The hope was that the bolt climb out of the Mary Rose airbell would lead to the bottom of the Chrystal Orechasm in Rowter Hole. Unfortunately it wasn't to be with the climb leading to an impenetrable boulder choke.

Rob did make some underwater progress up a small inlet but this will need a return visit with small cylinders as it is a bit on the small side.

Many thanks to the management at Speedwell Cavern for giving us access via the show cave.
