About Us

GoCave was estabished in 1985 initially as a freelance operation working for a variety of Outdoor providers, since then it has grown around the beliefs and expectations of its owner and Trainer, Iain Rennie. With over 30 years of full time professional experience in the Outdoors and more than 35 years of being out there enjoying the mountains, crags and caves. From GoCave we bring our energy to promote caving to a new audience and to ensure that its done with greatest care and respect. Now with Adventure Vertical, a new adventure begins with the technical skills in a wide range of activities finally getting its public stage away from the traditional centre environment. Working within team of highly qualified and like minded professionals many who are NGB Trainer and Assessors brings a quality of experience to all participants.

Iain Rennie at GoCave.com holds the Cave Instructor Certificate and has a wealth of experience to match this high end award, enabling Training, Assessing, Leading and Guiding to take place throughout the Caving and Mining regions of the UK.
