Come Join us for some Icy Underground Exploration!
By special request we will be revisiting the Center of the Earth. Here at HVH we are not satisfied by merely penetrating the Earth's Crust. We'll be heading straight through the Mantle to the HARDCORE baby!
What to expect:
Unlike our caving trips, this venue will be much larger with little to no crawling. You will be mostly walking, climbing and rock scrambling. Since this is the Winter Edition you can expect to travel through snow and ice to get to this location. I urge people to bring traction as we will climb out an icy section and walk on areas with Ice underground as well!
What you will need:
- A Helmet
- A headlamp with backup batteries
- Clothes that will keep you warm in 40-50 degree weather that you don't mind getting a little dirty.
- Boots with good traction and ankle support that also can get muddy.
- Gardening gloves or similar lightweight gloves preferably with rubberized grip.
- Micro-spikes (and/or Crampons - optional)
- Gaters (optional)
- Your Last Will and Testament
Where to meet:
Keegan Ales Brewery
20 Saint James Street
Kingston, NY 12401
AFTERWARDS FEEL FREE TO JOIN US FOR FOOD/DRINKS AT KEEGAN ALES BREWERY!
