This was an awesome dive! All three of us went this time. We wanted to go upstream since Billy and Jay were both side-mount. We got back about 200ft or so past "Not My Fault". It gets pretty tight through there if you're back-mount and I was the only one back-mount :-) We took a bunch of pictures on the way out. After we got out we decided to shoot downstream real quick. We got to the canyon and Jay turned around. I wasn't ready for the dive to end yet so I kept going solo. I got back to the point I was scraping on the ceiling and my belly, the perm line went around a corner and down a small slope. Too tight for back mount. I played around on the way out, cupping my light and listing to the sounds of the cave monsters that attack solo divers. I also took a few pictures on the way out just having fun. We had a great time! Billy was way more comfortable in his new side-mount rig. Need to do this again soon!
