This weekend I headed over to stay at the South Wales Caving Club‘s Hut at Penwyllt in the Brecon Beacons in south wales with a local caving club. The cave that we did on both days was Ogof Ffynnon Ddu (The Cave of the Black Spring in English) which is one of the longest caves in the UK which has three entrances, one at the top of the hill (OFD Top), one in a disused quarry (Cwm Dwr) and another at the bottom of the hill (OFD 1).

On the first day we did a through trip from OFD Top to Cwm Dwr which was great fun and is a trip that I always look forward to as it involves so many different types of caving such as scrambling, walking in streamways, big chambers and crawling, but there are no photos as it was a long trip so chose not to take the camera. However we went for a shorter trip on Sunday which was a round trip around OFD 1 which is the lowest entrance in OFD. This was a shorter trip so I took my camera along and took these photos before I dropped my flash trigger down a rift that we were traversing along which meant from there on I had no way of triggering the flashes required to light the pictures.
