Today's mission was to traverse across a steep slope 150 feet off the floor to view one of the last two areas of Simud Hitam that we have not been able to either visit or have our LiDAR laser mapping machine see from some vantage point. So, let's get right to that bit with a couple pics of the traverse.
Almost there... and then he was and rigged a tie-off so the traverse is now rigged and safe to bring the laser scanner over and map that area of the cave. That should happen soon. And all the corrugated metal sheets are so that if anyone tries to sneak in they will make a lot of noise and wake the guards.
