Well I think that we can easily justify another evening in Cwmorthin, if only to get everyone over that damn traverse that we played with last week. I may even remember my camera this week to record the occasion!
We also need to do a little forward planning, as the next few weeks sees myself, SimonRL and a couple of others off on holiday so we will need to pass the baton around a bit if we want to keep the trips going in the interim period. Perhaps we could sit down and discuss it over a kebeb.....how civilised! Laugh

Meet up at cwm car park, here:

http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=52.990067&lon=-3.963796&z=17.2&r=0&src=msa

at 1815 ish and onward and upwards from there Thumbs Up

So far we have:

Myself
Llion
Chrisj
Willy Eckerslyke
Corin +1
Blober
Donstuart

SimonRL is away topping up his G'n'T levels Wink

Anyone else away?
Anyone else fancy it?

See you there!

Loads of fun, another area of the map completed and a round of applause to our intrepid ladderman.Flowers
Nice to meet you Claire. Thumbs Up
I hope the Holyhead contingent got home without a night in Blaenau clink. That wasn't why I suggested you went in front Jay, honest.

Message to the friendly chap in the red car - Hello. Feel free come along with us one evening. Smile

Bonjour!

How'd it go?

I'm guessing you laddered / bolted up the opposite wall?

Anything up there? I would have guessed about 50 yards of level to the same collapse we looked at on floor 1? Any chambering?

Did you go back to last week's area and try that little manway?

I'll leave Llion to describe the wonders he found up there.
Needless to say, none of us felt the need to follow.

Dom?? Don Thumb Up

The rozzers are out and about EVERY Thursday night when I'm on my way home, driving along at 58mph daring you to pass them. Last week they pulled over to let me pass and then followed me all the way from Dolwyddelan to Nant Ffrancon before overtaking....its like they sit on your bumper trying to force you to make a mistake and then pounce Cursing

Remember a few weeks back that one coming out of Betws, going slower and slower until we finally overtook?

But I still don't know what was at the top of that ladder!
