Ogof Pasg and Ogof Foel Fawr, Herbert's Quarry, South Wales

These two small caves are connected and the plan was to do the through trip. We thoroughly explored Pasg first and stopped for Brendan to take numerous photos. The connection involves descending a pitch and in spite of taking the recommended ladder length and a long tether the bottom of the ladder was about four metres from the bottom of the pitch. The only alternative was to walk around the side of the hill in bitterly cold driving rain and enter Foel Fawr. We did all manage to get through the very tight squeeze and find our way to the canal at the bottom of the ladder pitch, stopping this time for photos and video.
