YSS Try Caving
Have you ever wanted to have a go at Caving - well this could be for you!
Tried caving years ago and fancy another go - well this could be for you!
The YSS welcome you to a “Try Caving Weekend” at our hostel;
The Old School,
Helwith Bridge, near Settle
The Yorkshire Subterranean Society (YSS) hold organised try caving weekends for people curious about the sport and would like to give it a try without the expense of special courses and equipment.
We normally assemble during the Friday evening at the school so everyone is fresh and ready for a start on Saturday morning where we will kit you out and then brief you on the day's activities.
Once the kit out and briefing has been completed we will then take into the YSS SRT (single rope tecnique) training facility and show you the basics of using ropes and allow you to practise these tecniques. Depending on numbers we will then allocate groups - then it's off to have some fun out of the sun!
Although we appreciate not everyone can make an organised date or maybe more keen to try caving sooner. We are a welcoming group and you will be accepted no matter when or what your experience - if you can't wait for the next organised event contact Pete who will endeavour to set something up earlier for you.
