Stunning lap of ‘the Gap’ in beautiful Welsh sun. Filmed on DJI Spark and GoPro Session and edited in Quik. Starting from Talybont on Usk and taking the Brynore trail up before dropping down to Pontsticill Reservoir then back up to the gap and onto the long descent to take you to the canal and back.
Crickhowell is a small town and community in southeastern Powys, Wales between Abergavenny and Brecon. Previously in the historic county of Brecknockshire Crickhowell Bridge is an 18th-century bridge that spans the River Usk in Crickhowell, Powys, Wales. The main A4077 road to Gilwern crosses it. The bridge is claimed to be the longest stone bridge in Wales at over 128 metres. Cantref is the middle, and smallest, of the three reservoirs in the Taff Fawr valley on the southern slopes of the Brecon Beacons. This view of it is from the A4059 road which comes off the A470 at the southern and of the Beacons Reservoir.
A quick taster of what we get up to on some of our caving trips in the Brecon Beacons and South Wales
Lovely flight over Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons to the Coast.
Sigma 9 being the tool of choice.
Sunday 2nd October 2016 – a perfect day for exploring the Brecon Beacons…! This was the first time I’d done this and with no great desire to do a big xc I was able to just enjoy the spectacular views. As it turned out I covered 53kms over 2.5 hours, so it really was a great end of season treat! See the flight here – http://xcleague.com/xc/flights/20163270.html

Fancy giving it a go?
Two young friends decided on a caving trip to celebrate Harvey’s birthday and so we headed down the muddy slopes of Clydach Gorge and underneath the imposing stilts of the A465. The cave is made obvious thanks to the small waterfall issuing off the lip of the caves ledge entrance and the cave itself proves to be a fantastic exploration of phreatic tube, narrow squeeze passages, wet crawls and fossils!
The secret hidden cave behind the waterfall. It can only be accessed when the river is in low flow or else it would be flooded. Found a new area inside that I’d not expored before so that was really cool to find. A hidden gem in the Breacon Beacons.

Porth Yr Ogof (translated as the gateway to the cave) boasts the largest entrance of any cave in Wales at over 17 m wide and almost 5 m tall. Porth Yr Ogof was once operated as a showcave, but is now managed by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority on a 999 year lease. A managed pay and display car park adjoins a BBNPA visitor centre that is generally manned by a warden. The maze of passages with multiple entrances and easy access has made this the most popular cave in South Wales for outdoor activity groups. The cave is estimated to have over 30,000 visitors per year.
