Welcome, 2018 freshers, to the Imperial College Caving Club website! If you’re interested in caving, then this is probably the place for you.

There’s a list of our upcoming trips above and the website contains loads of useful info for new and prospective members here. You can also check out our trip reports (e.g. Wales + Yorkshire for a better idea of what a weekend with us entails!

If you have any questions, feel free to email us on our gmail account, or join our facebook group to get the most up to date info on trips and socials.

We’ll be in Beit Quad for Fresher’s Fair and hope to see you there! We’ll also be holding a meet & greet plus tree training (aka dangling from trees in caving kit) in Princes Gardens from 12pm on Wednesday 3rd October. If you’re not sure where to go, we’ll be in pretty noticeable caving kit mingling around one of the big trees on the Ethos side of the gardens. Tree training will then occur every Wednesday of first term from 12pm!

You can find us at the Union Bar/FiveSixEight every Tuesday from 6pm where we’ll be drinking beer and possibly be in the possession of a noticeable caving helmet.

Watch this video for some more info on the club and how to get involved from one of our ex-presidents!

A mass attack on the Penyghent saw a pleasing variety of novel caves explored with cavers in Penyghent (plus Friday the 13th), Dale Head, and FOUL Pot. On Sunday, aided by excellent weather, we did an Alum/Diccan exchange.

Two bold ICCC members venture into the outside world and accidentally socialise with non-ICCC cavers. They may have also learned some cave biology.

A wild Kingsdale weekend consisting of a successful King trip and a soggy and unsuccessful Swinsto/Simpsons exchange on the Saturday, followed by an exciting never-before-contemplated pull-through/derig in Swinsto on Sunday and some excellent faff/rigging practice with ten Craven members in Heron on Sunday.

We go to Sardinia for a week, camp in Su Palu, swim in Locoli, eat risotto and generally get muddy around plentiful formations and caverns measureless to man.

The Imperial Democratic People's Republic of Caving has once again demonstrated it's superiority by conducting "democratic" elections far more convincing than many others that have taken place this year. Despite having no consitutional limits on re-election and a voting system based almost entirely on how much people have had to drink the caving club has avoided the ugly stain of autocracy by electing fresh new figureheads.

Congratulations to the new committee:

Rebecca Diss
Jennifer Ryder
Jack Halliday
Tackle Master:
James Wilson
Health and Safety Officer:
Arun Paul
Social Secretary:
Úna Barker

And also commiserations to the winners of the following awards:

Herman Herz: All occupants of the bivi during the lightning incident for the lightning incident.
For Evans' Sake: Jennifer Ryder for leading her friends into a literal river of shit and being the source of some creatively used vomit at CHECC.
