The Underground Texas Grotto is a group of cavers from the Austin area that explore caves in Central Texas and beyond. Members range from raw beginners and occasional cavers to hard core international expedition cavers. All community members interested in caves and caving are welcome.

Meetings are held on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays (if there is one) at 7:45 pm. Meetings feature accounts of recent caving expeditions, slide shows, and a chance to sign up for caving trips and training sessions. Contact us for location and directions.

Learn how to rappel and climb rope safely. Be sure to introduce yourself at the meeting and talk to people who are leading upcoming caving trips. UT Grotto membership is open to all members of the greater Austin community.
