New to caving from NJ

Postby alexandralillo » May 5, 2019 5:36 pm

Hi everyone!

I am interested in learning more about caving. I've begun exploring the NSS website and have contacted my local grotto in NJ.

Do you have any recommendations on books, resources, etc. to learn more about caving? Thank you!

CAVING BASICS by Wiseman & Harler, available from the NSS BOokstore (at a discount once you become a member). Has a touch of everything you need to know.
When you are ready to start vertical, ON ROPE is good - if dated. A new version with the newest equipment is due out in about 18 months, but don't wait. The basics are in the current edition. :cavingrocks:
