Return to Yagby

YARRANGOBILLY KARST AREA – 7 – 14 September 2018
As far as caving areas in NSW is concerned Yarrangobilly (Yagby) has to be one of the best there is for both sporty caving and good formations.  David S agreed to lead some trips for MSS so we locked in the dates and applied for permits – my only concern was “do I really want to do the Hughies Dig squeeze again?”
