We're aiming to be out of the cave before 18:30. The faster we get in, the faster we get out. We may well be out sooner.
We will arrive at the location together and get you the equipment you need. This is the best time to try on this kit and make sure we get the right size.
We'll walk to the cave and explore it together. It is a 2 minute walk to the cave from the cars.
The cave contains some crouched passages, some walking passages. You will have a powerful headtorch so it will be quite bright. The group will be together and there will be much laughter and possibly swearing. It will be fun.
Maybe. Sometimes new different things are scary. But we'll be supporting and encouraging you to take things at your pace the entire time. This about having fun and having each others back. Whether you're nervous or loving it, we've got your back.
Doesn't matter - it will happen anyway.
The temperature in the cave is cooler than the outside temperature at the moment - about 13C. You'll be well dressed and there'll be no wind.
Yes. Bring a packed lunch, which we'll eat on the surface.
Part of the cost includes hiring use of the special equipment you'll use. Here's what you should bring:
Avoid anything made from cotton or untreated wool (such as t-shirts or wooly jumpers); synthetic fabrics that keep their warmth when wet work best here. You will be provided with a thick fleece layer and a protective outer layer to wear over this, so if all you have is cotton you’re better going without.
If you don't already have them:
We'll also be carrying the appropriate group equipment.
