We are running a training session at the YSS centre in the Yorkshire Dales on the 11th of November to help people learn basic SRT (ascending & descending a rope). You don’t need any prior experience in rope work at all, we will be starting with the basics. In the afternoon we will then go and practice what was taught at YSS underground. Full information and booking: https://lancastersu.co.uk/groups/lancaster-university-speleological-society/events/srt-training-session-and-trip/ unfortunately there are only 6 spaces available due to the limited number of gear we have as well as limited number of people sufficiently skilled and available to show you. Don’t worry though, we will be running future trips.
Please not you need to be a paid member of the society to attend, contact the exec if you are unsure about how membership or want to clarify your membership position – or if you have any other questions.
A huge thanks to everyone that has helped us get this this stage – we could not have done this without your help and support. The rain did cause some last minuet reworking but we where able to take 13 new cavers down Yordas, Kingsdale Valley Entrance, Thistle and Runscar. So a great day in the Yorkshire dales was had by all.
Huge thanks to everyone who came to talk to use at our stall today – great to see lots of interest! And hopefully we will get to meet you at some events in the future. The flyer we where handing out with details is included below:
We are expecting high demand for our give it a go date but don’t panick – in the event that we sell out then additional dates will be added. Follow our Facebook page for more information:
Some of us were lucky enough to day to get a caving trip in the Yorkshire Dales down Alum Pot. And while that would be great news in itself, just before we were able to meet some BCA representatives and collect a host of new gear! Huge thank you for everyone at the BCA for sorting this out and their general help with many other things as well! With all this new gear now all we need are even more members and can explore even more caves, so why not join in on the next trip?
