A mean, lean team set off from London with one goal — to cave until we could cave no more. On Saturday Tanguy lead us on a mad dash from Top Sink through to Stake Pot, splitting into a Lank and Mistral team. On Sunday we tackled the glories of Alum and the thrutchy majesty of Washfold.

We picked up three stray cavers hitch hiking along the M1 to swell our ranks in view of a three-pronged attack on Kingsdale. On Saturday we visited mighty King, pernicious Vespers and damp Rowten. Sunday saw a jaunt to Sunset Hole and Great Douk in wintry conditions.

We return to the Mendips for our annual baptism in Sump 1. Two teams in Swildon's on Saturday, and one in Longwood Swallet. The SMCC has a fantastic new squeeze machine which we combined with a table to create our own speleolympics in the evening. Sunday saw a trip to GB and another Swildons round trip (as well as an expedition to a tea shop).

A week long caving extravaganza. The first day exhausted our rope store with 5 caves rigged on Kingsdale; Vespers, Simpsons', Swinsto, Aquamole and Jingling. We fully explored Leck Fell with visits to Box Head, Notts 1, Lost Johns' and Death's Head. We also visited Little Hull, Gaping Ghyll and various trips through Easegill. And of course we had our annual rescue techniques training sesh.

A classic exchange to Notts 1 on Saturday, including a classic "look around in the 5m vis fog for an hour until you find the entrance". And everyone managed to exit a different way to how they entered, a true exchange. On Sunday many went to Notts 2 for a bimble up the stream and a few went to Lost Johns' for some rigging practice.

Our second trip of the year, and in a break from tradition we stayed at the Bradford Pothole Club's hut in Brackenbottom, lovingly known as the Dump. We did the classic Flood/Bar exchange in Gaping Ghyll, with a splinter team to Little Hull, and on Sunday one trip went to Hunt pot, whilst the others tried to do a Sell Gill exchange.

The first day trip in a decade (maybe?). We went to the Mendips where most people managed to get beyond Sump 1 in Swildon's Hole in the short time we had. All in all a successful and enjoyable venture.
