Most people can't do this work. These caves are remote, dangerous and undocumented. These expeditions require a rare combination of skills.
Our volunteer team is not only dedicated, but uniquely qualified to retrieve this valuable data.
They possess a rare mix of mountaineering,
ice-climbing, rope rigging, glaciology, science methodology, expedition logistics planning, cave survey, wilderness medicine, and other skills.
Glacier caves are remote and difficult to access and these expeditions are complex. Our projects require the same level of care, detail and planning as you'd find on a Himalayan expedition.
As we've become more successful with our expeditions, scientists and others have expressed more interest in our research. We collect data under their remote guidance, following their strict methodologies.
