Would you go into this cave? First, it has a long tunnel called "the nose dragger" named, because, well, you'll see. And second, at one point I mention that the water is 40 degrees (Fahrenheit). Have you ever put your hand in an ice cooler to grab a drink? Remember how it felt after you left your hand in there for more than a few seconds? Yeah, that's how this was. For perspective, the Arctic Ocean is 28 degrees. And we were submerged in it for approximately 3 hours. Let that soak in for a minute while you check out this clip.

Check Outerthere recommendations for caving. Want the #tees we rocked on the trip? Get 'em hurr. That said, we also used caving suits (Dickies brand onesies are ideal) and we absolutely needed wet suits. The thicker the better. We also needed appropriate insulation for our head, hands and feet. (I, of course, had none, because I'm an idiot.) We also used harnesses, rappelling accessories, and a static line, all of which we brought. Additionally, everyone also had helmets, 3 lights each, knee and elbow protection, and dry bag. Because this cave was unguided and at-your-own-risk, you had to have all of this gear in order to successfully enter and exit this cave.

Caving (or spelunking) is an acquired taste. It's dangerous. It's dirty. But we're going to do it safely and it will be one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life. Check the clip from our last trip then sign up. This trip will require we split a rental or carpool. Details via email only.
