The Gauntlet is a Volunteer run Metric (Alpine) Single Rope Technique Course with the goal of helping cavers to learn, expand and refine vertical skills.

We are powered by Donations and Volunteers.

Listen about us on the: Caving Podcast


We have some extra gear that we can loan out if you need something (or everything) or just want to try something new. If you have a vertical set, please bring it. We also have a reccomended Gear list.
None, we are a volunteer organization. You can always Donate to help buy gear for the course and pay for travel expenses
We know its easier with a Frog System but if you can demonstrate your ability to pass all off the skills, then certainly.
