Cave Liability Waivers

These documents are not caving permits!  

We're providing these forms on-line only to speed transfer of forms between cavers and cave patrons and to reduce mailing costs. You are required to have the appropriate form in the patron's files before entering an IKC-managed cave. To actually visit one of these caves, you must contact the individual cave patron or grotto liaison to obtain a permission and/or the keys to the cave gate.
