The sun rises, the sun sets, and Imperial visit the Mendip Hills but once a year. This year we had four (count 'em) elite teams tackling various permutations on getting wet in Swildon's, and on Sunday one cracked team went back there, whilst the more sensible members of the club visiting Eastwater or GB.
A glorious weekend of caving, with two classic trips to Lost Johns' and Notts II. Torrential rain made the route through Monastery impassable, but we had a complex and rewarding exchange deep inside the bowels of the earth, before emerging to a new caving meal, shakshuka. Sunday saw us in Notts II, which was surprisingly unflooded.
Our second Freshers' trip to Wales gave us an opportunity to explore Ogof Ffynnon Ddu even further, with Tanguy leading a bold, slim group through Cwm Dwr whilst both other groups made it to the main streamway in OFD II. The weather on Sunday was glorious, tempting some people into a hike, whilst others went to photograph the entrance series and a small team retrieved the ropes that had been left in the previous day.
Our first trip of the year! We tackled OFD II on Saturday, with teams into the streamway and the white arch series, and on Sunday some went to Little Neath to get dank, whilst the rest explored the caves downstream.
You can email us on our gmail if you have any questions. Or you can join our facebook group to get the latest info on trips and socials.
Our next appearance will be in Beit Quad at Fresher's Fair, maybe we will see (or have seen) you there. After that join us in Princes Gardens each Wednesday at 12pm where we will be doing an equipment familiarisation session (read: climbing in trees with our caving kit) or at the Union Bar, every Tuesdays from 7pm for beer and wildly exaggerated tales of past caving adventures - look for a caving helmet to find us!
