Hi all I am looking for a trip somewhere in north wales.
Ideally it should be an SRT trip that doesn't need drilling (I have no drill but do have hangers)

It shouldn't have tight squeezes (like the current pandora trip)
wet is ok
The old pandora through trip would have been ideal but is no longer a possibility.
Moel fferna is also ideal though we have been there before.

Thanks all

Bryneglwys, it is mid wales though, at the end of the Tal y Llyn railway. Wet, some squeezes to get in and some srt to get into parts. Im sure a PM to 'Thorpey' will reveal more!

I do remember there are some over towards the cost (possibly gold mines?) but not sure about access.
I have a vague memory about one with a lift still in place ?
I might however be going a bit mad

Ah yes, Bwlch Glas, would be a good one, easy SRT (mostly a free hang) and plenty to see of interest.

If you're in the area do check out Ystrad Einion as well. It's more merrdinemrys' neck of the woods though so maybe he'll chip in with a few more suggestions Flowers

Before you judge someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you judge them, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes.
