Caving >> SRT Caving


Single Rope Technique is the modern, effective method of exploring deep, vertical caves such as Gaping Gill in Yorkshire. Simply put, SRT is about abseiling to descend and prussiking up the rope to ascend. This course is designed for those who have some caving experience and want to learn SRT to take their caving further.

The first morning is spent on the surface, learning and practicing a range of SRT manoevres before we venture underground in the afternoon. On the second day we will aim to bottom a deep cave using Single Rope Technique. The focus throughout is on developing a well-practiced system which avoids problems and allows you to take your caving further yourself. All caving equipment (including SRT equipment) can be provided.
