Suggestions, please, for a North Wales trip on 2nd January 2012, the bank holiday.

There should have been plenty of time to recover from the night before the night before; and just enough time to fit in a trip before the year begins properly.

So... who and where?

Something not too taxing, yet not too relaxing methinks; possibly a bit of rope work, but not compulsory.

Suggestions on the proverbial postcard, if you please!

Have a good one Ed Smile Sounds a splendid mission Thumbs Up

Any ideas what we're doing down in N Wales on the 2nd? Any takers? Easy / SRT / ?

Sinker and the Thursday crew - are you still planning something around the 29/30?

Hi I would be interested, I'm a competent caver but have recently moved to North Wales so haven't had a chance to explore much. I'm happy with SRT. Not too sure at the moment what i'm doing but could be up for a trip underground on monday, can I come?

It shall be Corris, exact location to be confirmed on the day.

Suggest meeting at 10.30am at the far end of the car park of the Corris Craft Centre - http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=52.65341&lon=-3.847273&z=15.1&r=0&src=msl

Event created here: http://www.aditnow.co.uk/events/?uid=166 if you're attending / discuss below Smile

Would image about half an hour's walk before and after the underground bit, to include having a look at a few surface remains, then perhaps 4-5 hours underground.

Some vertical ascent and descent, nothing too strenuous, SRT kit probably not required.

Just a gentle bump towards the top, seeing as the forum is rather busy today!

Having had a chat with the man with the explosives (these do not relate to Monday's trip!), it has been concluded that SRT kit will not be required. Even if you're very keen...

Applogies to all but due to problems beyond my control including a LOAD of paperwork to prepare for work on the 3rd, I won't be able to attend at Corris tomorrow. Appologies all round, especially to Skimble unfortunately I can't now provide the lift I promised.... Angry

Vanoord: let me know how the TK35 worked out. I will PM you.

Simon, Skimble, Hymac etc I will be out on Thursday night....provided that I am working at the "correct" end of the country! Big Grin

Sorry to hear that Skimble!

Sinker: similarly, shame you can't make it, we'll have to arrange a return trip sometime soon. Smile
