The area and details of the meet
This isnt just a caving meet - its a Yorkshire Dales meet with an option on trying out caving. So do come along if you want to walk or climb instead/as well. The provisional plan is to do a novice-level caving trip down the lovely streamway of "Long Churn" and do a single ladder pitch to emerge half-way down Alum Pot. Anyone who can scramble with a head-torch should enjoy it. Bring old waterproofs, old thermals and wellies, because you will get wet and muddy. I have provisionally booked 10 places in the hut, but could easily increase the numbers if more people want to come. Cost is £5 per night in the hut. PRACTICE AT ABSEILING AND CLIMBING CAVING LADDERS IRBY QUARRY TUESDAY 11th 6p.m.
