70 bucks (~$104 in 2013 dollars) to travel 175 ft? Expensive passage! :laughing:

Not to mention embarrassing to be lost a mere 175' in a cave.

Any knowledgable caver will tell you that if you are without light to stay put and wait for rescue as well as having topside contact. 175 ft hymmmmmm...... I believe Id have to chance it. hahaha.

The caves of Watertown are mostly extensive maze networks so one could theoretically be 175ft from an entrance and yet have several multi-directional junctions to pass through.
