Hi everyone. New to this forum, but have been exploring Cwmorthin and Rhosydd many years ago whilst my grandparents were alive and living in Ffestiniog. Keen to go back there again this year. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to go along adit 9 and then up to level 4 and back out through the level 4 adit? IP: 109.176.215.216

I think Adit no 4 is the one that was blocked up and used as a reservoir.

Last used in 1887 and converted in 1890s. Looking at the map it also comes out on a ledge in the quarry and is most likely inaccessible.
