Great Douk Cave

Great Douk Cave 914m long .

The first recorded through trip was back in 1934 by NCFC
Entrance at West end is by 1 of three ways high right on bedding crawl, through the waterfall climb or traverse on ledge above main enterance to gain access to upper entrance once in follow the water up stream untill the water goes right leaving at the front of you an oxbow (old dry passage where the water once flowed) here you can go either route as just a little up the way they become one again. Keep following the water and the passaga eventually becomes from walking to stooping then into crawling and flat out crawl, push the water untill it leaves you on your left and follow the way ahead this becoms lower until you reach an opening in the roof go through this opening and keep goint through boulder choke turn left at the junctioin and at the next junction take a right this is one of your ways out through the crags.

Pictures over several trips.
