Ignorance is Bliss.
and Keith decided to have a look at Ignorance is Bliss. Just beyond the stalls.
below PJ and you can start to climb up. Keep on
climbing till you see the roof. There is a passage at this level, follow it
along to a T junction. Left soon chokes up, but right carries on till it silts
up. Just before this there is an 8ft climb into a bedding plane. Follow this to
a cross passage, turn left and along. Soon a large chamber is met; Cotton
Chamber. There are the remains of an old rope ladder and R. Bliss graffiti on
careful decent through a squeeze takes you into the chamber proper. A hole in the floor can be carefully descended (it’s slippery) to a stream. You‘re in Lower Pierces Passage just upstream of Eurika Junction. This was the original route into the Far Series. History is re-explored.
