O' Christmas Tree by ColinHSillerud O' Christmas Tree by ColinHSillerud
This cave had quite a descent, but my friend and I only had 50ft of webbing and no harnesses so we climbed it hand-over-hand. after that I climbed around for two hours setting 4 lights and 3 flashes. The pointy structure in the middle of the frame is about 500ft from the lens.

Thanks to Jarrod for all the help and some extra light.

You rarely see stuff like this around here. That's some high adventure. :) I've only ever seen formations that plentiful and untouched in tour caves. Love it! The comp flows well and provides something to look at in every nook and cranny.
