Caving: Agen Allwedd (25-Oct-2021)

Lovely walk along the tramway. Had a few route finding issues in the entrance series. Need to remember that most of the key route finding descions in the entrance are to the left on the way in. Just as you approach the boulder choke the route on is through a hole in the floor which was not immediately obvious, then along a small streamway and into ...

Caving: Ogof Fynnon Ddu (24-Oct-2021)

Awesome trip along the flood bypass route. Water levels were too high for the kids to go in the streamway. All the kids were really great on the wire traverses. We then rigged a lifeline for the ladder climb across the stream passage and the final via-ferrata section. We then went up the olipitical tubes to Pi Chamber, had something to eat then hea ...

Caving: Ogof Fynnon Ddu (23-Oct-2021)

Kids caving trip. Managed to find the route OK to Gnome passage through the Brickyard.

Kids did really well on the straddling sections along Salubrious Passage. We then stoppe ...
