just a heads up, We left an adder on the decline part of the engine shaft . it was about 5m below the rebelay.. it was looking kind of angry.. but should calm down in a day or two..

Had to re-read post as I thought it strange that you'd need a ladder near a re-belay.
Let's hope it doesn't multiply. At least you didn't try to remove it, as removing an adder from a mine probably counts as subtraction.
