Explore deeper cave and mine systems, using our specialist ladder and safety line techniques. You won’t need any additional training courses to take part, just a bit of fitness and determination. 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 the Peak district or plumb the depths of Yorkshire Caverns. A day you will remember forever. These trips have horizontal sections so you can explore the cave environment on foot as well. They contain all the fascinating information and anecdotes that are in non-vertical trips.
