Local Update

Once again, plenty has been going on at and around SWCC. We recently had new provisional member, Lucy, spend a week in South Wales for some caving and walking fun. She met many new cavers, saw places she had not visited before in OFD, visited the Neath Valley waterfalls, Big Pit and Oakwood as well as trying out a local indoor climbing wall.

Four of us also had an evening trip to the Swamp Creek pitch this week (4.7.17). This had been ably rigged by Bob and Paul earlier in the day. It was the second time that I had visited the pitch, the first time being around 7 years ago when I had been unable to pass the rebelay a few feet down the pitch. But this time, I managed it. Thanks to Bob and Paul for the rigging, and Dan for the de-rigging.
