We first headed to Big Chamber Near The Entrance then across and along to Bagpipe Chamber. From here we headed to the top of Arete Chamber where some photos were taken and then on to the Corkscrew Climb via the Wedding Cake. We took the sandy crawls at the bottom of the Corkscrew Climb to lead us to Swamp Creek, where Mark and Keith tried out the traverses upstream and Brendan took some photos with the rest of the party.

From Swamp Creek we headed past the Judge and Trident to the follow Salubrious Passage to Maypole Inlet. Once across Maypole Inlet we had a look at the climb down and then headed to Cross Rift. With time on our side we then headed to Midnight Passage so Keith could take Mark along the first section of the Midnight Traverses.

The return leg of the journey took us to Shatter Pillar and Selenite Tunnel and across President's Leap. Once at the Crossroads we headed up Salubrious Passage to make a standard exit via White Arch.
