If you rig the dry drop during wet weather you can still get wet at the bottom. Makes for a miserable wait while other people climb out since you have to crawl under some breakdown blocks to be out of the maelstrom.

Wow! What an opportunity. Be the first on your block to get an official TAG Classic Pit Patch, to be awarded as soon as the TAG Classic Pit committee is appointed.

:laughing: It won't be me that gets the patch lol. I can't see driving for 9 hours right past thousands of fine caves just to do a pit. LOL...even if it is a TAG classic. My time is better spent project caving in a very small part of central PA.

Off topic again.....SURPRISE!!! :waving:

Reminds me of the Vertical 8 and Horizontal 12 in the Virginias in years past.
