Since Walmslers, Ripon and Nettie were leaving in the afternoon it was decided to have a rapid bimble around OFDI up the stream way to Lowes Chain before heading up and out via the flood escape route. Mike was still having breakfast when we left so we agreed to meet him in the streamway by The Step on our way out. Having done this trip a few times before I was tasked with navigating which procedeed without incident. I have to... read more

So this was to be my first trip into the OFDII streamway from the confluence up to the fault aven series. A brilliant trip for those who haven't done it!! Principle aim was to find and photograph the Pom Pom coming from Cwm Dwr, a place I'd previously not had much fun in! Route finding down to the confulence was pretty much straight forward once we had found the correct boulder choke in Cwm Dwr (note to self [and rest of... read more

Fafftastic. This was approximately plan D after multiple previous plans were abandoned due to weather forecast or lack of trip leaders elsewhere. After directing the other group to Sell Gill, we were finally on our way. For some reason, Tatty Wife is a cave I'd never to before. I’d probably always been put off by the long walk. There was a lot more to it than I was expecting and it turned out to be a rather fun and varied trip,... read more

Preamble: I seem to be quite enjoying caving at the moment and have peculiarly high levels of enthusiasm for it, reminiscent of my youth. Consequently Toby and I conspired to arrange an extra-curricular weekend meet and put the call out for other participants. Now I generally do my best to shun any form of responsibility so when I was asked to choose a cave for this trip, I was taken aback. My immediate response was the Buttertubs, on account of its... read more
