Cave safely. Cave softly.
A guide to safe exploration
Cave exploration is an exciting and fun activity. While there are inherent risks, it is almost always a safe activity when done with the proper equipment and training. CaveSim is not an organization that guides real caving trips, but our owners and staff are expert cavers, and we do make frequent trips under ground, often leading groups of new cavers to help them learn about the amazing world under their feet. We also assist with real cave rescue from time to time.
Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of issues arise from improper gear and insufficient preparation. Below are some quick lists to help you have a safe and low-impact caving trip.
