Hello 2016 freshers! Welcome to the Imperial College Caving Club website. If you are interested in caving, you've come to the right place!

A list of our upcoming trips can be found above. There's lots of useful information for new and prospective members here like trip reports: a typical Wales (fresher's) trip and a typical Yorkshire trip.

You can email us on our gmail if you have any questions, or you can join our facebook group to get the latest info on trips and socials.

Our next appearance will be in Beit Quad at Fresher's Fair, maybe we will see (or have seen) you there. On Wednesday 5th October we have a talk on our cave exploration expedition at 12pm in Union Meeting Room 4 (all welcome), followed by an equipment familiarisation session (read: climbing in trees with our caving kit) in Princes Gardens at 1 pm (and every Wednesday at 12pm thereafter). Also find us at the Union Bar, every Tuesdays from 7pm for beer and wildly exaggerated tales of past caving adventures - look for a caving helmet to find us!

Here's a video from last year's president, describing the caving club. Fortunately for you, this year's president is far more photogenic.

A pre-expo jaunt to Agen Allwedd, for a last look at easy horizontal caving before Slov and to let next year's keen leading team learn its twisting passages in time for freshers trips next year.

A week long tour to Andalucia for cheap wine, beautiful country, and of course huge caves. We visited Sima Cacao (an ICCC favourite), the epic El Hundidero - Gato, Sima Cabra (of Don Quijote fame), and managed to squeeze in some canyoning and via ferrata.

On Saturday we plumbed the grim depths of East Kingsdale; crawling, squeezing and grovelling through the most unpleasant squeezes Vespers, Spectacle and King have to offer. To reward our hard work, we made Sunday sunny and went to Alum Pot for a photo-tastic multi-descent extra-vaganza.

It's that time of the year when the old, broken, and decrepit cavers are packed up in big bundles of tatty rope and carefully archived at the back of expo stores awaiting a time when science can restore their minds and knees. The best and brightest new cavers have stepped up to the mark, keen to guide the club ever greater depths of competence and excellence.

Congratulations to the new committee:

And also commiserations to the winners of the following awards:

Herman Herz: Bhavik "My Wellies Are My Crumple Zone" Lodhia for a brief attempt at flight.
For Evans' Sake: Tanguy Racine for unearthing a foul plague in an ill-advised excavation of the Bivi and succumbing to it's effects repeatedly whilst underground.


On Saturday we had eventful exchange between It's a Cracker and Boxhead Pot, with a splinter team heading to Rowten. On Sunday we braved the strong streamway in Notts II.
