There's a search box which searches all the newsletters. The most recent 3 years show up in the results but can only be downloaded by members.

COMRU had a practice there a few weeks ago and noticed the new bolts at the time. They were apparently placed by an explorer just before the practice.

Incidentally, COMRU's gas detectors regularly alarmed with low O2 levels. At one point this caused progress in one area to be aborted.

We installed a few bolts there about 15 months ago and had a bit poke about. All a bit hairy and sketchy really without much to recommend. There is a low 02 area around the Birdcage, although there might be others. IP: 86.171.13.33
