The last day of November!

Another small trip this week to Hafod Uchaf, a small slate quarry just outside Croesor.

So meet up here in Croesor car park - https://zoom.earth/#52.982066,-4.039696,18z,map

For around 1815ish!

This is a great one for anyone who fancies trying out mine exploring but hasn't been sure or anyone who just wants to meet the thursday nighters. There is a small ammount of SRT involved, but that CAN be avoided. Its possibly the worlds shortest through trip. Shocked So bring SRT if you have it but don't panic!

See you there Thumb Up

Hi Barney!
Wellies as the lower adit is a bit damp, I don't THINK it was over welly depth, someone else will be along to shortly to confirm that i'm sure.
Also just updated the post a little, forgot we'll be doing the tiniest bit of SRT as its a very short through trip!
