Really?? The day a few hours before Welsh lockdown (23rd Oct) there was both a jugging rope and a looped safety rope to clip.
Both these ropes are now in the water. The jugging rope has quite clearly been recently cut (two new frayed points clearly visible).Luckily all of my party had the skills to ascend back out, I know a lot of people who complete this trip would not be able to ascend the first 2 abs. A call out waiting to happen.
Can you go back underground over in Wales ?
Cwmorthin has a lockable gate/door, so that's indoors.Both Croesor and Rhosydd quarries don't have a door, so clearly can't be indoors and is therefore outdoors. Does it work like that??
But is a gate a door?

Does it work like that??No one should be underground anywhere yet. Never mind the indoors/outdoors thing (a mine is NOT outdoors...) cave rescue or mountain rescue would go their heads if they had to rescue someone from there. And you wouldn't blame them. "Easing" of lockdown doesn't mean a free-for-all; people still need to exercise some common sense.
Let’s not turn this thread into a debate about restrictions and legislation though. There’s other places for that, it was created to warn people of the current lack of rope in CRTT
We were told last year that Cwmorthin is technically not an indoor space, guidance from the powers that be was to “wear masks where practical and where you can’t socially distance”. If it was indoors we’d have to wear masks all the time.
...The last I heard Natural Resources Wales regarded caving as an indoor activity akin to playing cards or darts...
Well. It didn’t take long for the fun police to turn up...
