OU Cave Club trips

Trips in Trinity Term provide great opportunities for new and experienced members alike to do some interesting caving, often in slightly smaller groups that in the other terms.  Our trip plans include Mendip, Wales, the Forest of Deans and Yorkshire.

If for safety and logistic reasons we are unable to accommodate anyone on a trip, we'll let them know in advance, and prioritise them for a place on a trip later in the term.

OUCC trip HT22 1st Week - North Wales

£40.00

Description

This weekend trip to North Wales will be from the 21st-23rd January.

This OUCC trip will be a weekend at LCCC's Dan-y-Mynnyd hut.

We'll visit Croesor-Rhosydd on the Saturday (a through trip from Croesor mine to Rhosydd mine). Croesor-Rhosydd is a slate mine with some interesting features like a zipline, a bridge made of ladders, and an abseil into a canoe!
On the Sunday, we'll go to Bounce Below - an underground trampoline park in another slate mine, it's good fun. Bounce Below sessions are one hour long so it may be possible to have a short mine visit or walk after bouncing too.
N.B. - a visit to Bounce Below cost £25 so we won't cover that as part of the £40 weekend cost, but there are plenty of other slate mines and walks in the area for those who want to come on the weekend but give Bounce Below a miss.

OUCC trip HT22 3rd Week - South Wales

£40.00

Description

This weekend trip to South Wales will be from the 4th-6th February.

This OUCC trip will be a weekend at the South Wales Caving Club (SWCC) Hut - an established favourite with OUCC.

THe hut is right above Ogof Fynnon Ddu,so we're sure to visit this extensive system. It's also in walking distance of Pant Mawr. We'll try for a trip to Dan-yr-Ogof too, but don't be too disappointed if the DYO trip gets cancelled due to high water levels as that can happen quite often. Dan-yr-Ogof is a lot of fun but very wet - if you've got a wetsuit, bring it with you!
The Wales weekend would be a good choice if you've not been caving before, there are some great beginner trips in OFD as well as some more advanced ones.

Yorkshire's caves are often very vertical, and SRT experience is very valuable. We'll aim to do some good SRT trips, so you may need to have done at least one caving trip, and some SRT practice for this weekend.
