Freebase

  1. Caving

    Caving—also occasionally known as spelunking in the United States and Canada and potholing in the United Kingdom and Ireland—is the recreational pastime of exploring wild cave systems. In contrast, speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment. The challenges involved in the activity depend on the cave being visited, but often include the negotiation of pitches, squeezes, and water. In recent decades, caving has changed considerably due to the availability of modern protective wear and equipment. It has recently come to be known as an "extreme sport" by some. Many of the skills involved in caving can also be put to use in mine exploration and urban exploration.
