Second Saturday Trip
July 13 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Duration – 3 – 4 hours (plus travel time).
Location – Meet at Upper Pitts at 09:00.
This will be a trip to Craig-a-Ffynnon in South Wales. The aim will be to get to the Hall of the Mountain King and possibly onward to Helictite passage (time permitting). The cave does start off a little wet but is dry after the entrance series is negotiated. The cave consists mostly of large chambers and big-bore passages separated by boulder chokes. It is very pretty in parts.
No special equipment is required, although a belay belt is recommended for the second boulder choke climb. If travelling beyond the Hall of the Mountain King then good knee pads are also recommended. It takes about an hour and half to get to the cave by car and we will arrange car sharing on the morning.
Please be at Upper Pitts promptly at 9:00.
