Hi there! Welcome to the Imperial College Caving Club.
If you're new here, check out this video to see what we're all about:
If you're interested in caving, this is the place to try it out. Feel free to have a look around at some recent trip reports to learn about what we do, and look here for a brief summary. If you have any questions, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us at the pub every Tuesday from 6pm - we'll be in 568 or the Union Bar, probably wearing a noticeably muddy helmet.
During termtime we'll be running weekend trips every two weeks or so, with sign-up emails being sent out to the mailing list. The first three trips to Wales and the Mendips won't require any training or experience at all - you can just sign up and come along, and we'll provide all the equipment you need.
We'll be running rope training sessions every Wednesday, 1-5pm in Princes Gardens during Autumn term, where you can familiarise yourself with the equipment and SRT (single rope technique). You can just turn up and stay for as long as you like; just look for some people hanging in trees next to the Ethos sports centre. These skills will be used on trips to Yorkshire and Derbyshire, where the caves are predominantly vertical.
Bullpot farm offered the perfect opportunity to do a rare Easegill traverse, but we couldn't help visiting Leck Fell for at least one day. Others made the most of the sunshine by canyoning and climbing instead, discovering new prime locations for outdoorsy types.
