Croesor Rhosydd - Boat is stuck


Well-known member
Slightly off topic but what do people do crossing the lakes in coventosa these days? [...]

The ultimate option for crossing cave lakes is on a noble inflatable steed.

Crossing the lake in Smoo cave on an inflatable light-up zebra.


Bringing gear back across the lake at the Grotte de Gournier (unicorn supplied by the Finnish caving society navy).

Boat is free and set up on one way system.
Is far from perfect however works as intended.

Does seem to be taking on a bit of water now. I’ve emptied it today. Not sure if it’s the previous repair what’s failed.

We used it a week before you and was v full if water so bailed most of it out to make it stable enough for the crossing
