First time leaders in Dan Y Ogof

Jess and I have been waiting for the weather to be in our favour to lead our first trip in to Dan Yr Ogof for a while now.
Seeing the decent forecast for the weekend we invited Ian, Andy W and Mel to come along as our Guinea Pigs to drag around the system.
The lakes had a little froth on the top from where they had been sumped the week before but water levels were normal. Jess took the lead and we did the normal round trip route taking in all the usual highlights as we made our way around the crawls, climbs, canal and stunning formations that make DYO one of the must do trips in the UK. After 4 hrs of caving we emerged in to a dry and sunny day. Having just missed the cafe we headed to the SWCC head quarters where Mr Marris had a much appreciated cuppa waiting for us.
