    Encouraging and enthusing children to try caving

    As a long time caver I?d love to encourage my daughter who is 9 to come along on some easy trips! An outing yesterday had mixed results but was mostly positive! Main worries seemed to be cold feet and self confidence! I guess my question is, what are parents top tips for firing and...

    Layering V Furry suit

    I have a feeling this has been asked before but.. I?m tending slightly towards the idea of layered up clothing rather than a furry as a compromise and for a little more tailored climate control on longer trips. What are folks using as trousers?

    White Petzl helmet with a battered Scurion and some Princeton tech dive torches put down whilst getting changed yesterday and now sadly vanished? Not a popular place for cavers so I suspect it?s gone for good but if anyone comes across one for sale?

    Sleets Gill - Rather specific request for info

    Morning, Does anyone know if a Topo survey exists for Sleets Gill? Alternatively during flood conditions when the main cave is filled, does anyone have any idea of the distance from the water surface at the entrance to reach a point which would create airspace throughout the main passage. Eg...

    Proposed changes to North Yorkshire's Fire cover - Please read!

    Firstly I should say quite openly that I have a proffesional interest in this but I also think it's important that it's brought to the attention of cavers who cave in the dales as it will seriously impact the ability of the fire service to attend incidents such as flooding and diving incidents...
