New Book In Stock Now

In 1952 Underground Adventure by Arthur Gemmel and Jack Myres brought stories of exploration in the caves of the Yorkshire Dales to the reading public. Now, inspired by those classic tales, two new authors - Dave Haigh and John Cordingley continue the theme into modern times, bringing to life the dedication, ingenuity and sheer hard work needed to break new ground,often in desperately difficult circumstances, yet blend their narrative with the outrageous humour known only to cavers. :coffee:

Free rigging gear for UK cave projects

Ukcaving has over 1.5km of 11mm rope to give away thanks to a generous benefactor.

Photo shows just a fraction of the rope on offer

We'd like to help out with any projects that need rope.  We have 150 krabs too.

Your project could be digging, diving, climbing, bolting, you tell us why you need some rope and we'll do our best to help.

All we ask is that you take responsibility for the rope especially in terms of safety and conservation

 Tell us about your project and we'll take it from there.  No strings attached

PM me or email  :thumbsup:
