Caving and Climbing in South Wales

Staying at the CSS Hut http://chelseaspelaeo.org/cottage.htm
The Hut is adjacent to Mynydd Llangattock, which is home to some of the longest caves in the country. There’s also plenty of climbing nearby e.g. https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=1047#overview

Caving and Climbing in Yorkshire

From a caving perspective, Yorkshire is all about the deep pot holes and is
a great place to learn about using ropes to descend and ascend caves. As
well as the underground wonders, the stunning limestone scenery of the
Yorkshire Dales is a great place for walking and climbing.

Subject to confirmation we will be staying at the YSS hut; hut
https://www.yssuk.com/

This hut is ideally located in the heart of the Dales (and next door to a
pub!) with easy access to a wide variety of caves suitable for all
abilities, and an in-house Single Rope Technique (SRT) training facility,
for those new to vertical caving. For those of a less trogliphilic nature,
two of Yorkshires famous Three Peaks are can be tackled directly from the
hut, and for those climbers looking for something different, Hull Pot is
spectacular, and has some good trad and sport routes – It’s within walking
distance of the hut and almost counts as a cave ;o)

Caving and Climbing in the Mendips

There’s a huge amount of caving in the area, ranging in character from
tight tortuous squalor, through to sporting streamways and huge
well-decorated chambers. It’s also a good place to give caving a go, as
there are plenty of shortish easy caves on for example Burrington Coombe,
that could be combined together depending on how keen you are, or combined
with a bit of climbing or eating cake the nearby tea shops.

For those of you who prefer wide open spaces, there’s plenty of decent
climbing (including a pretty good selection of sport routes) and walking
too.
