A group of Leeds University cavers turned up to help us as we encountered rocks cemented together by hard-packed mud. Digging progressed until we were able to work our way upwards into a large echoing chamber which we dubbed Reverberation Aven, but 30 metres further on, the route became blocked with sand again. At the end of March, Ian Rolland, a young corporal based at the RAF base in St Athan, climbed in the roof above the Snow Boat and entered a tube which dropped down into a further 30 metres of passage.
But the problem was that although we had a compass and could easily estimate the distance, we had no means of recording the course of the zigzag route we’d followed. Clive suggested that we memorise several survey legs each, to reconstruct a map when we got out, but Spanners and I would have none of this. We were so tired! Slowly we made our way out of the cave, reaching the surface at 4:30 am. Staggering through the door at Whitewalls after walking back through the snow, we found everyone still up, waiting for us.
At the end of March, Ian Rolland, a young corporal based at the RAF base in St Athan, climbed in the roof above the Snow Boat and entered a tube which dropped down into a further 30 metres of passage. He was a member of CSS and not only a good climber but also an accomplished cave diver; although he was only a few months older than me, he had already established a name for himself by supporting Rob Parker on his British cave diving depth record at Wookey Hole Caves in 1985. Ian had also been involved with various ‘dry’ discoveries in Agen Allwedd and Daren Cilau, as well as making notable extensions to the latter cave by exploring the passages beyond St David’s Sump at the far reaches of the system.
