Fault Aven Series - Playing Hide and Seek

We headed off with tackle, camera and video gear to the Fault Aven Series in Cwm Dwr. On the way in we played a game of hide and seek with the tackle bag in the Cwm Dwr Choke. After Half an hour Keith was declared the winner of the game and so we headed off to our target. We split and headed to regroup an the confluence before making our way to the First River Chamber and then the climb up to the Fault Aven Series.

The pull through worked well and we are soon up in the high level passages. Not being able to make sense of where we were in relation to the survey we headed off following our noses until we had some notion of our whereabouts. Mark and Keith crossed a very large hole to inspect the Fault Aven itself while Jess and Brendan too some photos of the impressive false floor.

We then retraced our steps and headed in the opposite direction to find H Junction and explore the passages that radiate off it. Mark and Keith found the Pom Pom after a long section of traverses and took some video before returning.

We will return with some additional tackle and photograph Fault Aven and Pom Pom Passage on a future trip.
