Single Rope Technique (or SRT) is a series of skills which are used to progress through sections of cave passage of a vertical nature or those requiring a degree of safety precautions necessitating the use of rope to prevent falls. For most cavers this represents a core higher skill and use of SRT opens up a huge range of caving possibilities both in Ireland and elsewhere.
