Caving seemed more appropriate on Sunday – out of the wind and rain in Allt nan Uamh Stream cave (ANUS). Those members who squeezed through the sphincter discovered the magnificent gushing torrent of the Thunderghast Falls. A deficit of wetness down below meant that even the furthest reaches could be probed.
