A lovely tip into a infrequently visited area by the YSS, Upper Nidderdale is a must on any real cavers 'to do list'. El P has not visited this cave in any of his 56 years...so 2020 was the year to put all those mistakes to rest. An email , to Damian and and interest from Paul Magson and the trip was ON. A big entrance 5 mins from the car and into big passage with a lively stream...wonderful and beautiful clearly imprinted on the synapses in the cerbellum.We followed a round trip, skillfully led by Damian, including large passage , small passage, crawls, sqeezes , not too tight, even for the old man (El P), some very intersting rope climbs and descents, the odd canal and labrynth and some absolutely far out passage conaining the largest and most concentrated number of chert nodules (per m2) the President has ever seen, absolutley wonderful. A great cave and a great team, thank you for a great day in a superb pothole.

There are many club organised caving weekends, with a mixture of easy and difficult caving.  Over the past few years we have given lots of people the opportunity to experience caving with our "Try Caving" events.  These are quite popular and quite a few people have subsequently joined the club. We have YSS members caving most weekends so it is easy for new cavers to tag onto the easier caving trips and find people to help with more training.
