Cheated of their high altitude Karstic dreams by the weather, the expedition hunkers down in the remains of the Luminate music festival and sets about cave exploration.
Mount Owen is a snow go area so the team gathers in a roadside camp site to do some thinking.
Eds cellar is the target of the cavers attention this time. Braving the rain, terrifying rigging, and doubtful leads the team pushes on.
The expedition begins in earnest! New(ish) caves found, a big project started, and rain! So much rain.
The first steps are taken in New Zealand. Jet lag and rain hamper progress but the team is determined to get things done.
