All the caving trips this weekend were to the caves of West Kingsdale. On Saturday, we split into two teams: Olly, Simon and Stuart did Rowten, while Dave, Nial, Sarah and Rupert went to Jingling. On Sunday, we did a pull-through down Swinsto Hole and out through Valley Entrance, but unfortunately none of the photos of this came out.
