We (intentionally) met up with Notthingham and Exeter at the Belfry for a long night of caving games before joint NUCC/ICCC visits to Swildon's (x3), GB (x1), Easwater (x1) and Burrington Combe (x1). Sunday saw renewed bailing on the Short Round as well as photography in the abundantly decorated Manor Farm Swallet.
The Dales was rammed so we ended up in deepest darkest Horton, at the Craven hut. This enabled a trip to Little Hull and was not a detriment to a trip to Gaping Ghyll on Saturday. On Sunday a team probed Sell Gill whilst a clandestine group of D.O.G.G.E.R.S checked out a secret dig.
A superb winter tour which saw almost all of the rigging carried out by the next generation of leaders. We tackled club classics like Notts 1 and Gaping Ghyll, and tackled a few less usual ones like Death's Head and Yordas.
Do you dare to open the blood soaked tome called 'The Silent Watchers'. An epic fantasy, roller-coaster of a tale in ten chapters, full to the brim with sizzling gypsies. We also went to Lost Johns', Heron Pot and Yordas
Good to be back in Yorkshire! 15 of us jumped into Easegill with 4 more diving head first into Kingsdale (Spoilers we all survive). Sunday was a bit of an epic in Lost John's. No rope was left at the hut, everyone remembered maillons, no fresher mistakes were made and we got back to London at a reasonable time.
Our first trip of the year! We tackled OFD II and Cwm Dwr on Saturday, with two teams down to maypole and another half way down the streamway, and on Sunday two bimble trips and a Cwm Dwr to OFD II epic!
Hello 2017 freshers! Welcome to the Imperial College Caving Club website. If you are interested in caving, you've come to the right place!
We are an active and friendly club. We have regular weekend caving trips, mid-week meet ups in London, and foreign expeditions (...holidays). We hope you'll want to get involved.
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 4th October we have a welcome talk, followed by a talk on our cave exploration expedition at 12pm in Union Meeting Room 1 (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 6pm for beer and wildly exaggerated tales of past caving adventures - look for a caving helmet to find us!
Here's a video from an ancient president, describing the caving club. Some say he is still caving to this day..
