Crackpot Cave description


Active member

We suspect that most users of this forum will be very familiar with Crackpot Cave in Swaledale. However, we are very pleased indeed to now host a route description on our website:


As well as providing a summary of the cave and a little navigational advice, this is strongly aimed at promoting Crackpot as a great cave, for novices and experienced cavers alike. Key conservation and safety messages are reinforced to encourage novice groups to have a great trip with safety and conservation in mind.

This follows our efforts to clean up Crackpot Cave a few years ago (a splendid effort by several of our conservation volunteers) when we produced the following video of our work:


Enjoy! ;)
