A pre-expo jaunt to Agen Allwedd, for a last look at easy horizontal caving before Slov and to let next year's keen leading team learn its twisting passages in time for freshers trips next year.

A week long tour to Andalucia for cheap wine, beautiful country, and of course huge caves. We visited Sima Cacao (an ICCC favourite), the epic El Hundidero - Gato, Sima Cabra (of Don Quijote fame), and managed to squeeze in some canyoning and via ferrata.

On Saturday we plumbed the grim depths of East Kingsdale; crawling, squeezing and grovelling through the most unpleasant squeezes Vespers, Spectacle and King have to offer. To reward our hard work, we made Sunday sunny and went to Alum Pot for a photo-tastic multi-descent extra-vaganza.

It's that time of the year when the old, broken, and decrepit cavers are packed up in big bundles of tatty rope and carefully archived at the back of expo stores awaiting a time when science can restore their minds and knees. The best and brightest new cavers have stepped up to the mark, keen to guide the club ever greater depths of competence and excellence.

On Saturday we had eventful exchange between It's a Cracker and Boxhead Pot, with a splinter team heading to Rowten. On Sunday we braved the strong streamway in Notts II.

A superb weekend of SRT - a complex 4-way exchange in Notts 1 went off with only two hitches, and on Sunday we had four separate trips, with rigging practice, photography and a classic bit of Jingling.

The sun rises, the sun sets, and Imperial visit the Mendip Hills but once a year. This year we had four (count 'em) elite teams tackling various permutations on getting wet in Swildon's, and on Sunday one cracked team went back there, whilst the more sensible members of the club visiting Eastwater or GB.
