    AditNow vanished?

    A Phoenix from the ashes! I got logged out some time ago :( but can still use it's search facility which is Fan-*******-tastic! Don't know if you read this Simon? ... THANK YOU!

    AditNow vanished?

    Yes, I see the same. At least that's a reply from a webserver of some sort and not a "buy this domain" type message, so it could be worse. I'm not sure how useful speculation is, I mean this could be redirecting to a new hosting just before some grand opening like a phoenix from ashes or it...

    Help needed! Corris Uchaf Slate Mine (North Wales)

    Yes, that book is a treasure trove. Doesn't have much in the way of plans/surveys but does list names and grid ref for *mostly* all the slate quarries. I recommend checking https://www.moorebooks.co.uk/ for things like that

    Help needed! Corris Uchaf Slate Mine (North Wales)

    Most important item... Screwfix sell a hard hat for £4.99, or borrow a climbing or caving helmet. The roof can have fangs of rock. I slipped and stumbled forwards and whacked my head hard enough to take a chunk out of a helmet. No helmet and that'd be a fractured skull for sure! Have a good...

    Apologies for more daft questions but I notice the rigging guide says 55m rope, but the Micro Guide states 45m is required. I'd probably be there with a 60m but if I had to chose a different route down the main hole due to other parties and I needed to re-juggle which rope to use where - please...

    Does the pic above look to others like a naked lady with golden hair doing a huge amount of sparkly poo? Asking for a friend. .

    Please may I ask several fairly daft question, about the newly re-instated pull through and also Eldon hole in general (yes I did read the mini guide and rigging topo on PDCi before posting this) 1) The pull through up to Miller's - I'm wondering about what's at the top and so how to attach...

    Camping on NRW land, complaint received by CAL

    I struggle with B&B as I might turn up late, or return at some strange hour, so I try to stay at hotels that have 24 hour reception.. In the past I've turned up with a mate totally filthy, wet and ragged at 03:00 at Porthmadog Travelodge to check into our rooms for a 1 night stay and the night...

    Camping on NRW land, complaint received by CAL

    My work colleague did a sort of NC500 a couple of weeks ago as a family holiday, but more intelligently because he didn't stick to some exact tick-list mentality so he missed a section and saw what he wanted and spent some time on Skye instead, nor did he try to get round at speed like the...
