This week we're returning to a little mine in the Nantlle valley that never fails to impress. Laugh
The entrance is a bit splashy so warm clothes and wetsocks are advisable. Also SRT kit is needed as there are some ascents to do. Sounds like fun? You bet. Shocked

Meet near Drws y Coed around 6:15pm:

...as is a tetanus jab.

I would like to come along but I'm not going to commit as we have quite a few other things going on at the moment including belated birthday celebrations and a cat funeral. Confused Blink Sad

Yes. The "Centre Adit" on Colman's plan (2005) leads into a chamber which can be accessed from the bottom adit. I.e. above the question mark on your own survey.
We're currently exploring a shaft above that chamber.

Colman's plan:

Unfortunately the "Centre Adit", also known as the "Dead Sheep Adit" isn't a particularly favourable access. Angry

Ah, the ubiquitous ovine cadaver!

I'll have a look at that article lunchtime.
