Expedition Training
« on: December 28, 2021, 01:14:24 pm »
Hi All,

Does anyone know of any "regular" expeditions out there that do exped training in advance of the expedition. Thinking things like: surveying training (either paperless or old school), bolting, survey reading/map reading etc

It would be great to hear from you either on here or at my BCA email address: youth@british-caving.org.uk
All views are my own and not that of the BCA or any clubs for which I'm a member of.

Dachstien expo used to, I don't know if they still do.

I assume, no one's really been on expedition that much over the last two years, though I did get to Matienzo last summer. - They don't do pre-expedition training but there is ad-hoc training in surveying while there.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

in 2021 we organized the following :-)

- Two Anialarra expeditions but with less people then normal = Alpine Caving with lots of SRT
- 5 Rigotte/Vannon expeditions = diving, digging, survey, conservation. Hardly any SRT.
