The sun rises, the sun sets, and Imperial visit the Mendip Hills but once a year. This year we had four (count 'em) elite teams tackling various permutations on getting wet in Swildon's, and on Sunday one cracked team went back there, whilst the more sensible members of the club visiting Eastwater or GB.

We went caving in Yorkshire over New Year, visiting Kingsdale, Ease Gill, Gaping Ghyll and even as far east as Sell Gill. We ended the week with a cave rescue training day.

An incredible documentary video put together by Tanguy Racine accurately depicting life on the New Zealand expedition. It's got peppers, it's got chickens, it's got everything.

There's a load more information on our NZ expedition on the subsite.

A glorious weekend of caving, with two classic trips to Lost Johns' and Notts II. Torrential rain made the route through Monastery impassable, but we had a complex and rewarding exchange deep inside the bowels of the earth, before emerging to a new caving meal, shakshuka. Sunday saw us in Notts II, which was surprisingly unflooded.

Yorkshire I was sadly cancelled, so this was our first SRT trip of the year, to the massive and varied Easegill System in Yorkshire, staying at Bullpot Farm.

Our second Freshers' trip to Wales gave us an opportunity to explore Ogof Ffynnon Ddu even further, with Tanguy leading a bold, slim group through Cwm Dwr whilst both other groups made it to the main streamway in OFD II. The weather on Sunday was glorious, tempting some people into a hike, whilst others went to photograph the entrance series and a small team retrieved the ropes that had been left in the previous day.

Our first trip of the year! We tackled OFD II on Saturday, with teams into the streamway and the white arch series, and on Sunday some went to Little Neath to get dank, whilst the rest explored the caves downstream.

Hello 2015 freshers! Welcome to the Imperial College Caving Club website. If you are interested in caving, you've come to the right place.

We are an active and friendly club. We have regular weekend caving trips, mid-week meet ups in London, and foreign expeditions (...holidays). We hope you'll want to get involved.

A list of our upcoming trips can be found above. There's lots of useful information for new and prospective members here. You can also check out our trip reports in the menu to the left. A typical Wales (fresher's) trip and A typical Yorkshire trip.

You can email us on our gmail if you have any questions. Or you can join our facebook group to get the latest info on trips and socials.

Our next appearance will be in Beit Quad at Fresher's Fair, maybe we will see (or have seen) you there. After that join us in Princes Gardens each Wednesday at 12pm where we will be doing an equipment familiarisation session (read: climbing in trees with our caving kit) or at the Union Bar, every Tuesdays from 7pm for beer and wildly exaggerated tales of past caving adventures - look for a caving helmet to find us!
