Report by Sophie Hentschel

I really enjoyed my first trip with some of the YUCPC lot! And am very pleased that they are really fun and friendly. Also, I was surprised about our group's efficiency: meeting early, leaving almost on time, and not too much of faffing and waiting around :p Alex let me de-rig the last pitch on the way back, which I really appreciated, and he's a good teacher. Thanks again! I've never been to a mine before, only natural caves, and have to say that it's quite awkward to come back from caving, erm mining, without a single bruise... perhaps too comfortable?? All in all I had a great time!
