Meeting point: the public car park at the top of the mountain, beside the B5111 (Amlwch to Rhosybol/Llanerchymedd road). Grid Ref: SH438905. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=243732&y=390515&z=120&sv=243732,390515&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=713&ax=243732&ay=390515&lm=0
This is also the starting point of the surface Heritage Trail (car park sign refers to this), which is worth looking around if you have time.
Kit requirements: either full SRT kit, or a weight bearing belt/harness, cowstails, screwgate karabina and possibly an ascender/descender to self line on in-situ ropes.
BCA Insurance IS required. It is a requirement of the mine owner that anyone going in carries insurance, so if you''re coming, please bring your green cards.
However... If you don''t have such, don''t worry as we''ll let you become a temp PUG member which covers insurance for 17 days (come again as many times as there is a PUG member with you) during that time for a tenner. We''ll even let you upgrade to full membership and therefore BCA insurance, for a year for an extra £11.
