This was a hole in the middle of the Wakiva river that Alton, one of Dave's friends, took us to. I signaled to Dave that I was going in and headed in alone. It went back, then drops straight down a chimney to about 55ft. I crawled in and got to the bottom, where it levels out. Just then, I got hit with a landslide of shells, sticks and other debri. I moved a little lower into a small opening and worked my way around until I was facing out, then swam through the debri torrent, following my line, to get back out. Glad I ran that line! :-) Alton later appologized for causing the landslide. No big deal but I may have made it a bit further had I not had to deal with that. It was pretty tight though, I was ready to come out anyway.
