Wrysgan Slate Mine

After dropping off boats from the recent canoe trip Alan & myself drove down to North Wales in order to complete our familiarisation with Wrysgan Slate Mine.

After a night at the Pen-y-Pass Youth Hostel we headed down to Tanygrisiau via breakfast in Bedgellert. We were headed off for the mine entrance by 09:30 & completed a full mine tour from floors 1 -5, with re-entry at the impressive Floor 6 with all its daylight chambers.

A short walk back down the hill, on the outside, saw us go back in again at Floor 3 to enjoy the long traverse, followed by a climb down the hand-line and on to the man-way on Floor 2 for an abseil descent and exit. This is an excellent trip.
