Monolith valley rad-venture THIS WEEKEND!

Trip type: 
Canyoning
Difficulty: 
Hard
Start date: 
Saturday, 20 January 2018 - 6:00am to Sunday, 21 January 2018 - 10:00pm

Sorry not going to the Castle.

Say what? What could be better? Instead, it's a cave! (hence: dark canyoning)

Saturday: Walk into monolith valley, then explore cave.
Sunday: Explore one of the nearby peaks (e.g. Nibelung?)

As the cave involves rope-work you will need to be comfortable and fast on rope. There will also be a fair bit of scrambling and carrying heavy stuff around.
Marked as hard difficult due to the exploratory nature of the trip.
