Spelunking! aka Cave Crawling
Back by popular demand, Urban Diversion is once again taking our members to explore the dark depths of the earth in California's Central Valley. This will not be your normal caving experience. We will explore the cave by the light of our headlamps as we steep-slope climb with ropes, rappel into shafts and crawl on our stomachs! We will have an experienced guide but also the independence to explore the cave based on our own curiosity.
Most areas are undeveloped, so there are no lights, stairs, or
walkways. This underground environment boasts stunning stalactites and ravines, which serve as habitat for bats and other rare underground species. This trip is conducted by experienced, highly trained
guides. No experience is necessary. Gloves, hard-hat with light,
and coveralls are provided.
*This is a very popular event and we only have limited space available!*
What past members have said: "Fantastic!! This is an extremely exciting adventure everyone must do once in their life time! Like nothing I have ever done before."
Can I do this? This event is similar to Scuba Diving (without the water) as far as endurance and mental health. It will go down as one of the best things you have done in your life!
Note: This trip goes on RAIN OR SHINE.
Health Requirements: Cavern exploration requires good health and
stamina. Those with chronic conditions such as heart and lung problems,
or pregnancy, impaired mobility, or excessive weight should not attempt
the adventure. Eat a good breakfast before you arrive.

After the event, we

these options are NOT included in the event price and are up to each
