Recommend a Guide for the Croesor Rhosydd Traverse? 6 years 7 months ago #10198

Hi Guys

I originally asked a question along these lines this over at Mine-explorer.co.uk and Suboffender kindly pointed me towards UCET.

Q: Some noobs here stumbled on Wrysgan above Blaenau Ffestiniog, and after exploring down to the lower levels we've got the bug. We've generally got climbing experience, but no SRT skills. Now we were looking to see if we could do the Croesor-Rhosydd traverse at some point next year, and are looking for someone who would willing to Guide us. Now obviously we're going to need to get some SRT training, be able to convince said guide that we're competent, and also, I assume, recompense the dude/dudette. But assuming that can be sorted can anyone recommend someone? It sounds like UCET does provide training and does do the CRT occasionally anyway (Even September this year!), but unfortunately we're scattered about a bit (Cambridge, Manchester, etc) so I don't think joining you fine folks would be practical for us. :unsure:

Thanks for any input! :)
Best, Steve

I'm not sure who would offer to take you through, but you do really need to be confident with the basic SRT skills, the CRTT in my opinion isn't a particularly technical trip these days, with there been so many in situe aids.

My advice would be get some basic SRT experance, while i know UCET offers some SRT instruction in a safe enviroment, i beleive (but could be wrong) it is only for UCET members.

membership is pretty cheap though - even if you looked at it as a training course! ;-)

Do you already have SRT gear? The club has kits to lend for member training and to use until you get your own kit sorted.

Hi Tim,

No unfortunately we don't have SRT gear.

I guess the main problem with joining would be distance from North Wales. I had a quick look around your site, but couldn't find details of UCET membership. Do you have an info-page you could link me to?

Cheers,
Steve
