For the adventurous looking to go further, this is the first essential step towards self-sufficient vertical caving.
S.R.T. allows you to access the deepest caves in the world as part of a small, skilled team.
The definitive method of descending and ascending pre rigged caving ropes under your own control.
Its about the kit and its about personal technique.
With expert guidance and instruction, take part in comprehensive technique training sessions. Conducted both above and below ground, enhancing your self-reliance in Vertical Caves and Pot Holes.
Tackle multiple self-protected, technical abseils, down vertical shafts into underground chambers, passing all forms of technical rope work on route.
Descend near waterfalls into dark chasms below, then explore the caves deep core by foot and after, using your fully trained skills, return to the surface safely, using only your skills on the rope.
(Please note S.R.T. bares no resemblance to climbing methods or equipment.)
The course is set over a minimum of two days and most people find three days allows a much deeper level of understanding and practice.
