This map is from Martyn Keen and I marked some of the spots of our 1st day activities.
We found and entered G1 this way, thru the damaged view and bearing taking stand.
PFW followed me thru the damaged G1 view stand
The roof of the G1 view stand has crashed down.
The bearing stand base of G1.
PFW is preparing to walk down one level.
From the bearing taking stand to below one walks passed these telephone booth.
We are walking down to G1 lower level.
We came down these G1 steps.
The lower level in G1.
The corner of G1, lower level, where one comes down from the bearing taking level and the door left leads to steps to the surface.
G1 lower level, that opening is to the steps to the bearing taking stand.
G1, lower level, scrappers haven’t missed too many places.
G1, steps to the surface.
The steps to the surface, this where we came out.
This flat area is on top of the Battery Smith Magazines and it is not too far from G1.
On top of Battery Smith Magazine I seen this vent right away.
It is a pretty deep vent and maybe serves both the powder and the shell magazine of Battery Smith.
Here is a pile of rocks on top of the Battery Smith Magazine, maybe they were part of a Machine gun position. The vent of the last pic is only about 12 feet away.
All along we were just above the rear, rail entrance to Battery Smith.
The rear, rail entrance to Battery Smith. To see the vent and G1 one just turns left and up and one will find them.
Right under me from where I took the last pic is a large culvert which I never noticed before.
The continuation of the large culvert at the rear of Battery Smith. Now it dawns on me that this is the head water of Grubbs Ravine and creek.

2013-02-12 Barrio San Isidro had a separate road towards the Stockade Level and crossed a small creek with this bridge between the Barrio and the Nipa Quarters.
