Cave Conservation and Safety are our priorities.
Project caving, photography, and grotto trips are our expertise.


Aragonite in Dry Cave by Dave Socky

The Blue Ridge Grotto is a social grotto, with politics taking a back seat to good trips, friendship, and good caving. We have monthly caving trips geared from the beginner to advanced project trips. We are not a large group, about 65 members, but we do have members from all over the state and the country. We are very active in the region (VAR) and the NSS. Check out our membership and About links for further information about the Blue Ridge Grotto.
