The Old East Passage, Gaping Gill

The Old East Passage, Gaping Gill

A few days ago we paid another visit to Gaping Gill, a pothole in Yorkshire with a 110m drop from the surface. Once inside we went off to explore the Old East Passage.

After climbing the east slope and scaling a small ladder we entered a wide low passage.  Progress along the passage varied between stooping and a crawl.

The passage is well decorated with an abundance of stalactites :-)

If I were younger I would have a field day scrambling around in this cave.

Haha- that's some pothole. Although there was one in Chicago last week that DID swallow a whole car.

Crawling and stooping - NO THANKS! Give me the open air any day!

Oh you are brave, it's not for me

I think I've only been in a cave once, and that was on a tour. I often wonder how I would react to doing something like this. I know for some people it would be terrifying, but I can see where it would be an incredible adventure.

This is very nice post. It is also very helpful for us. I have been searching types of posts. Some days ago I read an article about post. But this better than post.
