Another great Charterhouse for caving.
We were lucky to get some assistance from Dean, a caving leader from South Bristol College, who came along on the advanced caving trips on Saturday and showed the Scouts some new ways to use ropes underground to help with safety in difficult sections. He also showed us some new routes in some of our old favourite caves. On Sunday we also found some hard new routes in Goarchurch which severely tested even our most experienced cavers. We also ran some beginners’ trips and introduced some new Scouts to the cave environment.
While we were warm and snug underground, the other activity teams were battling the weather, dodging snow, rain and string winds. A nice reminder why caving is such a good winter sport!.
