Sangju Yong Cave

This cave was formed along a vertical fissure- most of the Koreans could not manage the wierd stemming off-width that had to be traversed to reach the end of the cave, (Once again, Chrissy blew their minds by leading it.) This was the only cave we visited that had a sump that looked interesting that had obviously not been dove.

 The entrance ladder (!) and the only wide passage leading to the narrow fissure crack which was the rest of the cave.

 It got narrow, and vertical. Here the crew is almost on top of each other.

 Chrissy leads the offwidth (unroped) about 30 vertical feet up to a ledge which led back down to the sump. Minds Blown.

 On our first Korean cave trip, and our last, we saw these endangered copper wing bats.

 The sump. About 3 feet wide, but 30 feet long and who knows how deep. This was at the bottom of a 50 foot rope drop.
