Hi all,

I’m curious, has anyone dropped the sumps in Guddhamgill High Level?

Leif.

Get a gas monitor first.
Contrary to popular belief, you can’t “smell” low oxygen.

Leif - I think that John Lawson went down some of the sumps. Mind you, that was in the last century.... IP: 87.115.69.110

Depending on which level we are talking about, several of us went into Guddamgill level and went down sumps, particularly the one with the air pipe down it which should lead to the flats but is choked off.
We have also been to the middle and bottom level of the pipe sump, below the choke, via other ways.

Nice one. I’ll get onto Nick to chase that up.

Sounds Like GGHL.
Any idea of the other ways around the pipe sump choke?
PM me if you’d like?
