A quick run around Cwm Dwr

As the dig was taking a little longer than anticipated to pump out, Jess and I took Chloe, Ian and Becca for a quick trip in to Cwm Dwr.
Jess had been kind enough to sort out the caving gear as I had been working non stop with late nights the week before. Reaching the entrance shaft I realised Jess hadn't actually put a battery in my helmet and after snapping at her (sorry honey!) she kindly swapped helmets and went off to sort the battery issue.
I dropped down first followed by Becca, Chloe and Ian, then poor old Jess arrived after running back to the van.
After seeing Becca and Chloe to the beginning of the crawls I set them loose and continued in with Ian and Jess to re-group in Cwm Dwr Jammer.
We made our way through to the choke to find a couple of lost cavers trying to find their way in to the choke for a through trip, so letting them tag along we took them through and explained their route before we continued on through to The Smithy and Picadilly.
On our return we found our lost cavers.....lost again, after checking they knew their way from The Confluence we again set them on their path before making our way out and re-joining the dig team.

Present: Ian Millward, Becca Kirkpatrick, Chloe Burney, Jessica Harding & Mark Burkey
