Wales Mines Weekend
Our primary mission will be the Croesor / Rhosydd through trip, which is a classic underground adventure involving zip-wires, inflatable dinghies and Indiana Jones style rickety bridges. Plus there’s good scope for mountain walking in this area too. We are staying at the Lancashire Caving and Climbing Club hut at Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Caving, bonfire, fireworks, barrels of beer, outdoors food and fun with caving chums and the family. Based at Whitewalls.
