POC Caving

Caving: Go in clean, come out dirty!!

Caving is the exploration of underground caverns. It can include walking, crawling, rappelling, and climbing. The enjoyment comes from getting away from this wonder of concrete and red brick, challenging yourself physically and mentally, seeing the beauty of the formations, and generally getting really dirty. You may have heard caving referred to as spelunking. Many cavers prefer to say 'caving' instead of 'spelunking'; however, it's the same thing.
