5 Caving Trips That Are Not For The Faint-Hearted

Part of the attraction of caving for me is pitting myself against nature and these 5 caving trips are amongst the most technically difficult trips I've done in my thirty plus years of cave exploration.

Completing each trip in the knowledge that I'm one of a privileged few to have ever done so has led, in each case, to an enormous sense satisfaction.

Caving is Cool - P8, Derbyshire

Filmed in P8 (Jackpot) on Wednesday 28th October 2020 in rather aqueous conditions.

Why pay to go to a waterpark? This is far more adventurous and far more exhilarating!

P8 was one of the first caves I did when I started caving in the late 80s. It was with the now defunct West Midlands Cave Exploration Group. Conditions were very dry and we explored beyond sump 1. Obviously this wasn't possible on this day!
