Hi Folks,

I am a definite maybe...

How far are you planning on pushing the mine? I might break off and check the route up to Cyffty beyond the neck deep slime.

I’m likely to be with Emily

Dave T is running the trip, I guess he will spot your query and post a reply soon enough.

I "think" we are going to the end of the level and not dropping down to kneebones.

Come anyway dude, it's been ages :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

The aim is to travel to the far end of level 2 and up the raise to Cwffty East visiting areas of interest on the way and then head out. If people want to visit level 3 outbye the collapse in the principal lode using the ladderway near the Bidston experimental area then I can take a rope - you will need SRT gear and this will add another 2-3 hours to the trip.

If people want to visit Cwffty West by dropping down the far ladder-way down to level 3 inbye the collapse in the principal lode then that's fine by me - but set your own callout as I won't be joining you... Wetsuit recommended and if water levels are very high a snorkel would be useful :) It's over 8 years since I did the trip with Roy and Jason up into Cwffty West via that route and I used a furry suit. I was really glad to get back to the car and get some hot soup in me as I was freezing...

Yes, but .... the trip is for two people coming up from the South. We don't want to kill them do we Captain.

Anyway, this is a good trip :P

It's not that bad, just over knee deep for us tall blokes (well maybe it is up to my wedding tackle, but it's still not that bad...)

Last time I did it there was no claggy goo. The water is a little bit orange though.
It's not that deep if you pick your route carefully but I can see how Ian would find it more of an issue... :whistle:
There is a lot of stuff down at the lower level to look at and the abseil out of the Ore Chute is good fun too...
