+the pooks Posted March 2, 2011 Share Posted March 2, 2011 (edited) We were looking at the Slingsby map while sitting in the cave and noticed it was shown a lot higher up. The contours lines are very close to each other in that area, so any small horizontal deviation relates to a big vertical deviation. I doubt Slingsby's sources would have really known much about the cave anyway - it is really quite little known. A Mountain Club expedition (reported in the 1958 MCSA journal) found buttons and various other items in this particular cave (they are on display at the MCSA club museum, don't know where that is though). See article by Mike Scott. In fact it is Charles Morisson mentioned in this article that took us to the cave. Having now done the route to the cave, it is not actually that hectic - only scrambling required - no rope stuff. Apparently the route Penny would have taken would be up the front of Kloof Corner and through the neck (at Kloof Corner Medium cache). Edited March 2, 2011 by the pooks Quote Link to comment
