What is Caving?

Reading University Caving Club is one of the most unique sports societies at Reading. At lot of people have heard of Caving but don't really know what it entails (we promise, it's nothing like the Descent).  By definition it is the non-competitive exploration of underground passages, but this really is just the start. Every cave is different: crawling, walking, climbing, abseiling, wading through water and sometimes swimming are all part of the exploring underground. In short, it's a bit like inverted Mountaineering.

If you want to find out more about caving, talk to one of our members at Freshers Fayre or come to one of our Freshers Presentations
