This weekend was time for another weekend away with my university caving club. We headed to the South Wales Caving Club at Penwyllt near Swansea where on the Saturday we went down Ogof Ffynnon Ddu which is the deepest cave in the UK and the second longest cave in Wales which also happens to have the deepest through trip which is where you go in one entrance and exit at another, we went in at the bottom entrance and came out the top entrance. As this was a long trip that we were trying to do quickly so we could get out in time for the rugby I didn’t take my camera so there are unfortunately no photos.
However on Sunday we headed to Ogof Craig A Ffynnon which is a cave in the Clydach Gorge near Abergavenny which is the prettiest cave I have been to though however also one of the muddiest! As this was a shorter trip and so well decorated I took my camera with me and managed to produce these photos.
It was a one of the best caving weekends I have had for caving in quite a while as the trip we did on Saturday is one of my favourite trips for general caving enjoyment as it has so many different types of caving; including climbing, streamways, crawling and rifts. And then the cave we did on Sunday is just so pretty it is worth all the mud and crawling through not so nice boulder chokes!
