The UCET website is currently undergoing a major rebuild. There will be reduced funtionality for a little while longer while this work takes place.
"It is often said that the planet is getting smaller. Indeed the only places left in the world where fresh discoveries can really be made are either underwater or underground...."
The U.C.E.T. are based in North Wales where we're lucky enough to have a broad spectrum of caves and mines. From easy "training grounds", to highly technical and sustained cave and mine systems including a huge potential for new discoveries.
U.C.E.T. was formed in 2003 by a few experienced Cavers who wanted to push the boundaries a little further.
As an activity, Caving keeps you fit and (depending how far you want to go) involves a fair bit of walking, crawling, climbing and dangling on ropes often elbows and knees deep in mud and water. But, it's not all physical fun like that! It also demand a high degree of team spirit, determination and focus to pull each other and yourself through the challenges. Not to mention problem solving and planning to make progress into previously un-explored areas.
Our primary concern is to welcome and embrace new members. Please feel free to get involved. We meet on Thursday evenings for local trips, with aim aim of being back to the Glan Y Afon Pub in plenty of time for a pint or two. Longer trips and trips further afield normally take place at 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 progress into more technical situations.
Feel free to browse and join our web forum. We are a very open club and welcome input from members and non-members alike.
You'll find plenty of contact details on the site if you'd like to give it a try, or if you have any questions you might want to ask on the forum.
