Event Details

Join Olivier Testa for a caving trip!

Petzl is offering a special opportunity for aspirant cavers to join Olivier Testa - globe-trotting cave explorer and filmmaker - for a special underground trip on Saturday 20th November.

Fresh from speaking to us at the Petzl Underground Session on Friday night, Olivier will be joining up with local experts Yorkshire Dales Guides to give a special opportunity for six people to get underground near Ingleton (30mins from Kendal). 

It’s a great opportunity for those who already have a little caving experience and wish to learn more to increase their knowledge and skills. You’ll be able to ask questions on techniques, use Petzl equipment, and learn about Olivier's caving experience. 

Tickets are priced at £20.00 and numbers limited to six; funds from ticket sales will be presented to the Cave Rescue Organisation. 

Equipment will be provided, but registrants must make their own way to a location near to Ingleton.

Joining details and further information will be sent out before the session. This opportunity is intended for those who already have some initial caving experience and are comfortable underground, it will use a vertical cave but no prior rope work skills are required. The trip is expected to take place between 10am and 6pm.
