- TL;DR Summary
- The dangers of caving at the world's deepest cave.
I'll second that. Visualize water falling down a vertical shaft. It would not be isolated drops. so I'm not sure what the terminal velocity would be. Whatever, it sounds pretty fatal to me.Dang. You wouldn't catch me in there. 7257 feet (2212 m) deep.
I saw that part of the video. Poor guy. :(While he had hand ascenders, he didn't have ascender stirrups for his feet and couldn't ascend the rope to get out and died from exhaustion.
Similar to a waterfall no doubt - misty, huge droplets, air entrained.I've been trying to imagine modeling the water falling in that 2000 m
