Thanks for the welcomes and the, unusual, discussion :silly:

This Thursdays trip does sound unsuitible for a complete beginner so, I'll certainly give that a miss!

Due to snow the original trip has changed and the new trip is ideal for newbies

That's a quick change, I only said that 8 hours and somthing minutes ago! :D

So, what is happening with this thursdays trip?

Here is a cut & paste Ant;

Trip: Maeshafn Mine

Trip Type: General Mooch as we haven't been here in a while. Great trip for newbies.

Meet time: 18.30

Meet place: centre of Maeshafn village

Notes: A bit squeezy on the way in/out, a bit muddy whilst in there but great fun anyway!!



I would caution against it for your first trip as it is very muddy, wet, likely to be flooded at the back and has a fair amount of tight and awkward squeezes. Not a good starting trip but one you should defo do later on :)

The other trip is an SRT trip (single rope technique) with a 470 foot shaft - most of the experienced members will even give that a miss :silly:

If you want to go, make sure someone else has you under their wing and you will probably enjoy it.

Sadly I cannot go as I am wrestling with an injury :(

;)

I'll probably consider going along and saying hello at the least, I don't really mind mud though! But I don't think I'm ready for tight squeezes so will probably give the actual activity a miss.

the only tight bit is close to the entrance and is about 15 foot long, not really tight. after that there is a small climb down then it's a walk about. i'll be going so will look after you

Tempting, very tempting. Plus it's pretty close to home so that really is a plus. I shall make sure I have some suitable clothes, which I probably do have somewhere, should I make it, which I hope to.

Definitely up for this. Mud does not bother me, In uni we had to wade through a knee deep bog in the name of biological surveying ! :blink: And as long as there are people around who know what they are doing, (I hope ;) ) Then any narrow bits should not be an issue.

Hello Ant - and welcome to the UCET forum.
Do you have your own transport?
There is another member who lives in the Wrexham area who very much wants to come on our trips, but needs a lift.

I live near Bangor and mainly do weekend trips with my daughter Bella. We do not do full SRT yet, but often do things requiring ladders and a life line.

I do have transport, but am not overly keen on driving in winter especially at night, so am at the moment keeping an eye on conditions before deciding for certain if I will be going or not.
