We are delighted to welcome Richard Gerrish, a world-renowned cave explorer, to speak on “Extreme Caving: Into the Deep”. The world’s caves provide one of the last places on the planet where original exploration is still possible. During this lecture, Mr Gerrish explains his adventures in the extraordinary world of cave exploration. The lecture covers his 2005 expedition to Malaysia exploring the eighth longest cave system in the world and the discovery of the second largest cave chamber in the world. The talk continues with his exploration of deep caves in China in 2006 and 2007, where Mr Gerrish was part of the first descent of the world’s second deepest underground shaft and the discovery of the first 1,000m deep cave in China.
