Down into the abyss:). At ~100metres it is the world's deepest commercial cave abseil.
Only one hand:).
My sis bought me the trip for a birthday present.
Into the middle of the earth:).

Sandwiches & Muffins for lunch before heading into the dark.
My 'Rocky' pose:D.
Jumping in the deep end:)!
Clambering up the two rocks faces. Took a bit of co-ordination, especially wearing gumboots:)!
Not for the claustrophobic:)!
Luckily the water level wasn't too high after recents rains.
Steve squeezing his 6 foot 4 frame through.
At the end after 7 hours underground!
