For these caving weekends we will do some surface training in the evenings and have two expeditions underground. Each of the underground trips will last a few hours. As an indication of effort levels, each trip involves a similar amount of effort to a day’s hill walking and will involve some abseiling and / or climbing. The courses start at 5pm on Friday and finish after breakfast on Monday.
Dates TBC, Cost: £456 participant, £354 sighted guide
If you are interested in this course please get in touch to discuss possible dates. This course is for people who would like to learn some more advanced caving techniques, including single rope technique, for descending and ascending vertical pitches. The first afternoon and evening will be spent learning the ropework on site at Bendrigg. The second and third days will involve expeditions underground. To attend this course you must have attended at least one of our caving weekends. Due to the advanced nature of the skills being taught the group will be very small, 2 participants and 2 guides with 2 Bendrigg instructors. This does make this course more expensive than our standard courses. We recommend you enquire and book early.
