Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
This trip is for bad-asses only. We’ll be exploring an intermediate cave in western Virginia. You will get muddy. You may get wet especially if you are uncoordinated.
You need to acquire the following equipment for yourself:
You will want extra underwear for when you pee yourself in excitement
for having done such an awesome trip.
2 2 2 2 2 2 2 I cannot say enough times 2 independent light sources that are hands free and with fresh batteries.
Water and some snack food, that you will bring with you into the cave.
Maybe some gloves if you want since we’ll be doing some easy rock scrambling.
The helmets and headlamps can be checked out from the gear room.
We will leave in the morning at 9 am. This means you need to be at the wall at 8:45.
We will return sometime late afternoon, perhaps by six or seven. We can work towards individuals schedules.
For drivers, the club will reimburse you for all gas and the lesser of 10$ or 30% of the cost of gas.
(PLEASE DON’T COME IF YOU MIGHT BE UNCOMFORTABLE IN A CAVE OR DOING SOME VERY CHILL ROCK SCRAMBLES AND STUFF. THERE ARE GROSS CREATURES IN CAVES. IT IS DARK. IT IS CLAUSTROPHOBIC.
