Southern California Grotto NSS


Southern California Grotto NSS
If you're interested in doing some caving, you might want to check out the Southern California Grotto. I've been planning on attending their monthly meeting to network with some local cavers. As a member of a grotto, you frequently get access to trails, and caves that the public will never get to see. I thought I would post a link to the grotto in case anyone else was interested.


"The Southern California Grotto meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Beckman Institute Auditorium at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena.

Meetings are a great opportunity to meet other Grotto members, learn about caves and caving, and get involved with grotto caving activities. Each meeting features a slide show on recent trips and activities by Grotto members, or other presentations about caves or caving." -Southern California Grotto

Best of all: A membership in the grotto will only run you around 25$ per year. 


Although I'm not a member of the Southern California Grotto, I've been on dozens of trips with the Louisville Kentucky Grotto. Caving can be seriously addictive. People either love it or hate it. If 7 hours crawling on your belly through a seemingly endless cavern surrounded by giant brown bats sounds like a nightmare to you, you might want to stick to hiking outdoors.

Don't get too excited, these photos are actually from the Louisville Grotto trips.
