Lizz led both pitches (it took several goes before she successfully forced herself into the cave, after shedding the rack and pushing it into the cave ahead of her), and being tiny managed to exit through the roof of the cave rather than via the side exit. Bloody good effort. Must have expended enough energy to light Holyhead for a week.
