About Upper Series

Various trips all wet. From novice to expert theres something for everyone. A lovely little trip where you can slip and slide into the entrance.

There is some crawling through lovely sections of the dry way. We will aim to head up to the new grottos, which are a little challenging to get into but hold some rare intact pencil stals for Swildons. Heading on down to peer over the 20ft pitch (a ladder climb available on the short round trip) and returning up the wet way or the dry way depending on the groups feelings. The dry way is lovely with a little challenge climbing up Jacobs ladder. The wet way is good fun, incorporating some great climbs up waterfalls and through some lovely geology. This trip can incorporate some very squeezy sections such as the zigzags and oxbows but these can be bypassed. Very much a living cave with active streamway and waterfalls. Please note you will get wet.
