Dan yr Ogof - November 2004

The old ropes at Dali's Delight have now been removed and replaced with new ones.
A new caver entrance is now operational for when the showcave is closed, this will avoid having to use the river entrance where recently a caving group were nearly hit from large falling rocks.

Cymystwyth Mines - June 2004

Information text: : Collapse in Cwmystwyth Level Fawr There has been a significant collapse on the main route of Level Fawr. This has blocked the left hand turn (off the entrance adit) towards the skip rails. There is still an opening to the truck and the obvious alternative route to the skip rails but anybody would be foolhardy to attempt it before any stabilisation has been carried out. The only safe route to the skip rails is to climb up and then descend the long ladder.
Thanks to those from Aberystwyth University who pointed out the problem.
