Required Equipment

Equipment, in normal semesters, can be borrowed from the club. The following equipment is required to go on a caving trip.


Here are articles of clothing that are recommended for beginner cave trips. This list is NOT all-inclusive, and it is recommended you ask your trip leader for suggestions. Note that cotton clothing is not recommended, as some caves can be damp. Instead, try to find clothes made out of polypropylene, nylon, or other synthetic material.

Please remember to bring a change of clothes for the ride back! You WILL be dirty!

Additional Equipment

Each trip has different requirements for equipment. As you get more experienced, you may want to bring additional items on your trips. Your trip leader can keep you more informed.
