Outdoor Ed.Cave Adventure!

25th April 2018 00:00 - 27th April 2019 00:00

Weather conditions dictated that our first trip would be in Dow Cave. This is a beginners cave but we managed to ‘spice it up’ a little by including a selection of crawls, squeezes and a look along the legendary Dowbergill Passage (we got as far as the duck- a short section with limited air space where you have to get very wet indeed). Water temperatures were Baltic as this was snowmelt from Great Whernside, so even with a wetsuit the ‘o- zone’ was frequently reached!!

The students also entertained themselves by sculpting various models from cave clay and rounded off the day with the obligatory madness…in this case sliding down cascades outside the cave…(we’re hard on this course!!!)
