Rick Royer rappels into the pit entrance of Cassell cave. - copr. Paul Gillis

The Potomac Speleological Club, incorporated in the State of West Virginia as the Potomac Speleological Society, is dedicated to caving, conservation and the science of speleology. The PSC invites cavers (and potential cavers) from all parts to participate in the club's many ongoing caving projects and social events. We especially welcome those persons interested in wild caving for the first time. Sport caving is dangerous and should not be entered into without proper equipment and guidance. Ignorance of the cave environment and cave safety is the primary cause of most caving accidents.
