There has been 115 m of new passage and two sumps discovered off Lumbago Walk, Peak Cavern. The downstream sump has been dived for 50 m, and is still going. The upstream sump was dived last night and this is blocked by silt after 5 m. The passage was dug open and pumped out during the current 2011 Credit Crunch Expedition. Exploration is still on-going and access is delicate; as this new passage starts in the showcave. There is also bad air near the sumps so anybody visiting needs to be aware.

Full report to follow.
