I think there should be a Caving forum on ukc, there is enough people who cave when the weathers to poor to go climbing. Also a caving section in the photos would be ace too..

I agree. When the grit season ends in autumn, I resort to caving through the cold winter until the days warm up again in spring sufficiently to get back out on the grit.

Great idea! I actually live in a cave. Well, a basement apartment anyhow...

Feels as though I live in a cave, especially when I turn all the lights out and listen to the sound of my taps dripping while I try to squeeze myself out through the cat flap.

Well done that man !

The absence of a "caving" forum never sprang to mind. I've done quite a bit and ventured into "canyonning", too. These sports all over-lap.

In reply to pauldr: But that means we'd have to let cavers in. Can you imagine the mess?

I went caving last week, wasn't quite as bad as I was expecting but I won't be hanging up the trad rack anytime soon.

After the cyclists got a little patch of internet for themselves, I don't think UKC can reasonably refuse other requests.

Scouts/Girl Guides will be next.

In reply to winhill: Yes, but the cyclists at least shave their legs- cavers don't even clear out last years nests from their lugholes

According to my wife (a long-suffering caving widow) "cavers are all up their own ars*s!".

If this be true, then there's certainly a place for them on UKC.

I find that cavers are so much more sociable than other people ie climbers, bikers

Right then UKC can we please have a Caving forum & caving photo forum ? ...
In reply to pauldr:

We are just about to launch our 2013 User Survey. There is a question on there about activities which includes Caving so we will look at the response to that to see what the demand is an act accordingly.

The Survey will run until the end of April and we hope to have results in May.
