2010

In 2010 there were three main expeditions to the area; Andara 2010, by SWCC, was a continuation of the small 2009 expedition exploring some of the leads on the Pico Boro. Campana Bejes was continued by the Spanish ‘Interclub’ and S.E.B. Escar commenced some new exploration work in Invernales de Caballar (Asturias).

2010 also saw the start of collaboration between Interclub, specifically AD KAMI, and the UK based expeditions

Andara 2010 (SWCC)

Abstract

A small lightweight expedition with key objectives to; revisit and continue exploration of Cueva del Entre Cuetos, Sierra del a Corta area, locate and examine current limit of exploration in Torca Septrin, Pico del Moro area, locate and examine current limit of exploration in T207, Pico del Moro area, locate and examine current limit of exploration in T69, Sierra del a Corta

Summary

In the short amount of time available for the expedition some interesting and promising leads were revisited and further progress made.

  • The Cueva del Entre Cuetos was extended with 3 new pitches (7m, 8m, and 10m) with the final pitch dropping through an impressive new chamber. The depth of the cave is now around -130m.
  • Torca Septrin was also extended for around another -30m depth, down a series of climbs, and a draft is still evident at the current limit of exploration. The depth of the cave is now around -140m.
  • T207 was finally re-discovered on the Pico del Moro, but it transpired there are actually 2 different locations and descriptions for the cave, with one description suggesting a good lead. This needs clarifying and possibly revisiting.
  • A number of leads on the Sierra del a Corta were revisited and minor progress was made. The area is definitely worth concentrated effort looking for possible ways into the top end of Cueva del Nacimiento
