Beginner Caving Course | The Adventure Hub | Saturday, 07. December 2019

An adventurous 2 day course covering both horizontal and vertical guided caving. Take a step into the dark, secret and mysterious world of horizontal caves and ancient mines. Our Peak District based beginner caving course is aimed at those who have not been caving before as we venture in and out of a couple of cave systems on this day to get a feel for the mysterious underground world!
Day 1: Horizontal Caving
An ideal introduction for people wishing their first steps underground to be fun carefully organised, informative and conducted by highly experienced nationally qualified instructors. Learn about the cave, its geology and the 300 million years it took to create it. Pick up tips on how to move underground efficiently, maybe try your hand at wet sections, muddy bits or squeezes and we promise you won't get stuck. You can see underground rivers and waterfalls, fascinating pieces of geology, cave decorations or historical sites of past of times and ancient techniques.
Day 2: Vertical Caving
Vertical Caving delivers adventure caving combined with the exhilaration of underground abseils and ladder climbing! Explore deeper cave and mine systems, using our specialist ladder and safety line techniques. Descend into the cave using abseils and traverses along high ledges, then after exploring the heart of the cave, return to the surface, climbing our roll up caving ladders. On all ascents and descents, you will have with a safety line attached to you, helping you up and keeping you safe. With a motivated team you can reach the deepest parts of Derbyshire. A day you will remember forever.
