"It is often said that the planet is getting smaller. Indeed the only places where fresh discoveries can really be made are either underwater or underground...."
If you've ever wondered what the caves and mines under your village look like, we can more than likely show you! We've got equipment to lend you and it'll cost you nothing to find out!
U.C.E.T. was formed in 2003 by a few experienced cavers who wanted to push the boundaries a little further. We are based in North Wales where we're lucky enough to have a wide selection of caves and mines. Easy "training grounds" through to more technical and sustained cave and mine systems. With plenty of scope for finding more and more 'new ground'.
Caving keeps you fit and (depending how far you want to go) can involves a fair bit of walking, crawling, climbing and dangling on ropes. It also demand a high degree of team spirit, problem solving and planning to make progress into previously un-explored areas.
We continually welcome new members and pride ourselves on being a freindly and welcoming bunch! We meet on Thursday evenings for local trips and generally aim to be back to the Glan Y Afon Pub in plenty of time for a pint or two although sometimes we head to alternative pubs depending on the time and geographics of the trip! Longer trips and trips further afield take part most weekends.
The club has equipment to lend to new members and has a dedicated training officer who can run through all the relevant training as and when you want to progress. But remember, there are as many walk in walk out trips avaliable as technical trips so there really is something for everyone!
