Looks a bit big for the area around the Toast Rack. I maybe wrong as haven't seen it that brightly lit before

No one has the correct cave yet but right end of the Beacons.

Trig - thanks for complement! Image was chosen less for any artistic merit and instead mainly to make this Wezzit a bit more stretching than some previous ones which have been identified in a few hours.

One small clue: this entire film (yep - its an old shot) developed browner than the passages appear in real life for some reason.

Sorry Damo - not Dany yr Ogof; sorry Huge - not Pwll Swnd.

Both correct end of the Beacons though.

Sorry Trig - not Pant Mawr.

First clue: the photo was taken just beyond the limit of daylight.

To determine whether these most recent suggestions are random guesses or informed identifications, which part of the cave that you named was the photo taken in?   :-\

Many previous wezzits have only lasted a few hours so it seems worth seeking a degree of exactness to stretch things out a little bit so ensure we don't all run out of photos within a few months!    :ang:

Ogof Pasg, upper level about mid way between the entrance and the climb/handline down?

Damo - you have it!   :)

After the bouldery entrance passage there is a junction: the Rabbit Hole goes off left and the main passage continues right, initially with a flat floor (where the photo was taken) and soon becomes bouldery again with small scrambles up and down, until the roof lowers at the short crawl to the pitch head.

Over to you...

Cheers Rob, It had been bugging me as I knew that I had been there and then the cogs turned and it twigged last night!

I will put something up shortly  :thumbsup:

Chunky,

Who is the old guy with the long white beard and big nose just beside the caver's shoulder?
