It's nowhere near as bad as it looks. Mark is a big guy, and it really is fun.

This looks like a cave I opened up here in AL. The first 80' or so is very tight and wet, and often has a strong wind blowing through it as well. The lower you go in it, the wider the passage is. Eventually it opens up and has ~1/2 mile of passage beyond the tight entrance passage.

When I saw this video, my first thought was "someone's been in MY cave!"

Thanks for sharing!

HI Trogman,
This cave is in South Wales in the UK. Have you taken any video in your cave?

Nothing really to speak of. I am not much of a photog, and rarely take along any camera of any quality. I am focusing more on surveying for now.
