Although this website may contain detailed information on caves, it was not designed to facilitate underground exploration by non cavers. All hazards are not necessarily reported and each and every piece of information mentioned may not be verified.
Caving is a diverse activity, with cultural, scientific and athletic dimensions. It often requires physical commitment and stamina. It also involves risks, even major risks. These risks, if they cannot be completely eliminated, are at least greatly reduced by safe and established practices. These practices are best understood when taught by a caving club.
GrottoCenter, its representatives and its contributors cannot be held liable for bad practices in caving, or for any accident or damage that might occur in the caves mentioned on this web site.
Any novice caver who would like to engage in underground exploration is urged to contact a caving club. The names and contact information may be be obtained, among other sources, from the IUS (International Union of Speleology), from GrottoCenter or from national federations and agencies.
