    If you have ever dived Dorothea Quarry with a twinset you too will look for easier ways to get your kit up and down the hill.
    2 trips.

    Hi flash

    the secret to getting up dotty hill with kit is to strip off all the lead then crawl up to about halfway stop get on your hands and knees and scream for help, if nobody helps then just die.

    The hill at Dotty is the test that the HSE people think you need to pass to be a recreational scuba diver, lol.

    I have never been but I'll warrant it isn't as bad as Dinas (Silica mines) and I can easily do that with a 12L twin set. I even took my JJ with twin 7s and a 3 up there - again no dramas. That trek would be impossible with a trolly.

    Get out. Walk up the hill with stages. Have a long breather at the top.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Surprised no one has suggested the obvious - pay someone to porter it up and down! If it is that heavy I would gladly pay someone else to shift it!

    neil

    great idea and when they have an heart attack and pop their clogs at the top of the hill you won't have to pay them.
    (unless its one of you sweaty socks then it will be paid up front)

    alby
