Major bolt climbing project right next to the proposed camp in Sanctuary.
There is a significant ice cold draught landing in the large dry plunge pool below the aven. The plunge pool was dry even in storm conditions.

Height estimated by max DistoX range in the conditition of approx 50m, this looked to visually hit the wall a bit less than half way up what could be seen when the chamber was lit as far away as possible from the observer (reducing reflection in the mist). Above what could be seen was still a big black hole. 100m+ may prove conservative Smile

The rock up the first 50m is slightly overhung smooth and solid looking limestone. After 50m it turns vertical.
