Crystal and Chaos Weekend

Hi everyone,

On the weekend of the 8th to 10th of August we are going to Crystal and Chaos caves! These are two caves not to be missed as they are the third and fourth largest caves in Southern Africa and are just stunning.

The trip is for members only and you have to be SRT proficient. If you don't have your own gear (Stop or Rack as abseil device), then space is limited as the club only has 5 spare SRT kits... so first come first serve...

We will meet at 08:30 at the garage at the crossing of the R500 and R501 in Carletonville.  26°22'22.90"S -  27°24'23.86"E.
We need to leave there at 08:40 at the latest to meet the landowner, so please don't be late.
The landowner will open the gate on Saturday morning and open it once more when we leave early on Monday afternoon. For the rest of the weekend the gate will stay closed!

For accommodation you can either camp or stay in a very old farmhouse. The farmhouse has a few beds and old  mattrasses.
For everything else you need to be self sufficient. That means there is no water, electricity or toilets and no shops etc. So bring everything you need for the weekend including a lot of batteries and warm clothes.

If you want to join the trip, phone John Dickie at 073 985 8068. You have to confirm with John, especially if you need any gear!

See you there for this awesome weekend of caving!

Steven
