Most caves in Yorkshire have a vertical element, the most common way to access these spectacular parts is to use “SRT”. This stands for Single Rope Technique, and involves using a harness with various bits of equipment to easily and efficiently descend and climb a single rope.
This two day long workshop will give you an introduction to the equipment, and the initial skills required to safely ascend and descend a caving rope. Further skills can be added during the weekend depending on the individual’s desire and progression.
These workshops are run by experienced and patient trainers, each participant will be able to progress at their own pace and you will never be “holding” anyone up.
This is a two day indoor workshop focusing on developing people who are new to SRT.
