Artificial Caving 07/03/2004

Off to the Hereford Young Mariners base just off the A10 for this event. An artifial cave system made from sprayed on concrete was underneath a climbing tower. This would have made it possible to abseil down and climb out off the cave, but we didn't. We did explore all the purpose built narrow climb spaces, and the best bit was when we all switched off our lights and navigated around the cave system without them. As it was a circular system it was impossible to get lost but, getting around without lights was tricky, I think the Fireman training helped a lot as I was able to nip around quite quickyly.
