Another beautiful spring evening forecast so let's choose a mine with a stunning view! Fron Boeth slate mine, high on the western side of the Moelwyns fits the bill perfectly. Thumb UpThumb Up

Meet at 6:15pm in Croesor village car park, here:

Everyone welcome. Thumbs Up
There's an SRT through trip - descending only so bring kit if that's your thing. If it isn't, come along anyway as there's plenty to see.

Just remember to take the knot off the end of the descent rope before you attempt to pull it through! Innocent

Now then, let's not get bogged down with who said what to whom and who told who to do what and who told who to pull what end of what rope and whatnot....Laugh
