Trips & Events Diary

February 29th - March 1st Nenthead Mines Weekend Away

A visit to Nenthead in Cumbria that will provide our first opportunity of the year to visit another type of underground setting... mines! There are many miles of underground passageways where instead of natural wonders it is possible to see abandoned mining machinery and other relics. There's also a 100m deep shaft which there will be the opportunity to abseil down, so start practicing on the long prusik at training! Exploring mines provides its own unique challenges which are very different from standard caving, so this weekend is a wonderful opportunity.

N.B. Mines have unique dangers and require a level of caution, respect, and ability, and so places on this trip will be allocated on a basis of ability - speak to a committee member at training if you would like to come.

Thursday March 5th YUCPC AGM 2020

Our Annual General Meeting, where we decide and vote on the committee members for the next year. Turn up and vote for who you want to see on your committee - or for the free booze.

Tuesday March 10th YUCPC Formal 2020

March 13th - 22nd Wales Week!

A highlight of the YUCPC year. We'll be heading down to South Wales where we will be staying at the SWCC bunkhouse. We'll be down south for a total of 9 days. The caving in wales is slightly different to the caving up in the Yorkshire Dales, as it is mostly horizontal and SRT is mostly not required.
