Explorer Scouts Coasteer and Caving Day.

So i was recently lucky enough to team up with some Explorer Scouts as part of their annual long weekend away. They had made the trip to Devon to sample its finest Coasteering and Caving, for an adrenaline packed day!

We started by meeting in the famous lay by at Pridhamsleigh Caverns, we got suited and booted and enjoyed a round trip of one the muddiest caves in Britain. The cave is great trip for begginers with route for all abilities although route finding can be difficult due to 3D nature of the cave so always have a survey or someone who knows where their going! Here are some pictures from previous trips into the muddy underground grotto…

We then drove over to Ansteys Cove which is a fantastic spot for Caosteering, easily accessible and something for everyone. It’s a beautiful bay situated of Torquay’s coast, but you must be careful as the site has an SSSI award for a rare Igneous Intrusion of rock. Anstey’s has a great mix of traversing and jumps from all levels at all tides. We headed out with the scouts, and enjoyed lots of jumps and lots of local jellyfish!

We headed back up the hill, changed and enjoyed some courgette cake, we said our goodbyes and left our very happy (albeit tired) customers to decide what the evenings dinner would be!

Here are some old photos of Myself and friends coasteering at Ansteys, enjoy!
