At Acclimbatize we consider that colour, shape, sounds, shade, form and texture all define part of the caving experience, equally as much as the physical effort of negotiating and squeezing through underground passageways. Caves are a scarce natural resource and as such, conservation is only second in priority to your safety.
Our Half day caving trips will give a good introductory caving experience under the watchful guidance of a highly experienced leader / instructor.
Introductory trips may involve the use of a rope to protect steep sections of terrain or help negotiate trickier sections of cave.
ItineraryOur usual formula for delivery is to begin the day with a look at caving guides and underground (maps) surveys.
Prior to setting off underground, we equip you with helmets, lighting, oversuits and boots.
You will then explore a variety of subterranean cave passages under expert instruction.
Some caves considered to be 'horizontal’ have sections where climbing / scrambling is required to negotiate sections of cave passageway – these can be protected by use of the leaders rope from above.
Our instructional staff will bring the underground environment to life by imparting information about the structure of limestone, the origin of caves (formation and development), how the caves were discovered and subsequently explored.
Most cave leaders seem to have a natural leaning towards story telling which can add a ‘further dimension’ to your underground experience!
