This was an excellent and quite sporting trip. We went in Cwm Dwr which was just like a typical Mendip cave but when we was in the main part of the cave it all changed. The stream way was outstanding with some big deep pools to encounter. A trip we must do a again.

Caving: Ogof Fynnon Ddu (28-Nov-99)

On the Sunday we were lucky enough to find an OFD 1 leader who took us down and showed us how to measure the water levels in the stream way. OFD 1 streamway had a lot of water in it and it was quite difficult to walk up it but it was excellent fun.

Caving: Ogof Fynnon Ddu (28-Nov-99)

  • Tim Lamberton, Mike Alderton

  • Ogof Fynnon Ddu

  • 05:00 hours
  • 255:45 cumulative hours

When Tim finally sobered up we attempted to do the traverses in OFD 3. None of us had been there before so route finding was a problem. After some searching we found a long deep traverse but after a little while decided this was the wrong way, which we later found out it was. At least we will know for next time.
