A superb winter tour which saw almost all of the rigging carried out by the next generation of leaders. We tackled club classics like Notts 1 and Gaping Ghyll, and tackled a few less usual ones like Death's Head and Yordas.
Good to be back in Yorkshire! 15 of us jumped into Easegill with 4 more diving head first into Kingsdale (Spoilers we all survive). Sunday was a bit of an epic in Lost John's. No rope was left at the hut, everyone remembered maillons, no fresher mistakes were made and we got back to London at a reasonable time.
Hello 2017 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 like trip reports: a typical Wales (fresher's) trip and a typical Yorkshire trip.
Our next appearance will be in Beit Quad at Fresher's Fair, maybe we will see (or have seen) you there. On Wednesday 4th October we have a welcome talk, followed by a talk on our cave exploration expedition at 12pm in Union Meeting Room 1 (all welcome), followed by an equipment familiarisation session (read: climbing in trees with our caving kit) in Princes Gardens at 1 pm (and every Wednesday at 12pm thereafter). Also find us at the Union Bar, every Tuesdays from 6pm for beer and wildly exaggerated tales of past caving adventures - look for a caving helmet to find us!
Here's a video from an ancient president, describing the caving club. Some say he is still caving to this day..
