1. I learned that making a ropeladder from nylon rope is not the best idea.
The rope burns on my hands and Sui’s weren’t to bad but Jim Gillette’s were epic, the rope melted his glove he slid that fast!
This culvert was discovered by Siologen in 2005; with a length of 0.47km this culvert covers a long section of the Medlock and is about 12/15ft tall inside.
We then set off in search of ‘Sparticus‘ further downstream only to find one dingy had a massive hole in it and the other a slow puncture.
