Ogof Draenen - Gilwern Passage
I had a call from the two doctors indicating that they would like a days caving on Saturday, to loosen them up for an orienteering regional championship on the Sunday. We met up in Luigi's as is tradition before heading up to the car park to change in the sub zero temperatures. We headed down to the entrance and had a moment or two of trepidation when we could not open the padlock, had we got the right new combination? After a bit of faffing we were in and we headed up towards Gilwern passage, through the boulder choke and into the passages beyond. We decided to have a play round in the passages in this area before we tried once more to get through the Breadfruit Boulevard duck. Alas it was still silted up and Brendan too fat to get through, so we returned taking a few photos on the way out.
