After finishing day one of the training course we decided to go on a slightly harder trip. Route finding was our main problem on this trip. The trip through Cwm Dwr went fine with no major rout finding problems. When in OFD 1 we had a look at the stream, which was a raging torrent, we then backtracked and climbed up into the bypass route. A wrong well-worn left-hand turn was taken where two hours was spent in a big chamber looking for the way on. We were convinced we were on the right track because it was so well worn and there was a resident bat. Eventually after broadening our search we found the correct way on. After the bypass we found the OFD 1 entrance quite easily thanks to Bea who had visited this part of the cave the week before with Bridget.

More caving training. Impressive river cave. We were given a situation to overcome as a group. This being a trapped person the other side of the river down a 4m drop. All good fun was had and lots of practicing techniques.
