Climbing shaft, Nile Mine 1970

Noted for the footsteps cut into the shaft sides, for ingress and egress, one day I laddered one of these shafts with Lady Bird acting as belay person! Only about 30 feet deep, and blocked, the footsteps were visible. However, not too obvious here, but just to the left of the electron ladder. Note to ginging at the top.
