Whitewalls Summer BBQ Weekend

A sunny weekend for the CSS Annual Summer Barbecue.

There was a mix of caving activities and also some walking over the weekend. The ropes used to explore the high-level features in Aggy Main Passage were de-rigged, and other caving trips took place within the cave. There was also an excursion a little further afield to Ogof Fawr – a very interesting cave with a different character to that normally encountered in South Wales. This was all followed by a BBQ feast in fine evening weather in the Whitewalls garden, with a barrel of beer provided by Adrian to celebrate his 60th birthday. Two trips to Draenen took place on Sunday, while others enjoyed the sunshine.
