For nearly two centuries cavers have explored, photographed and documented the vast caverns of Lebanon's Jeita Grotto, yet still to this day new limestone chambers are being discovered.Last month, 14 members of the club embarked on a two-day-long journey from the siphon at the top of the cave where the water comes in, all the way down to the exit.Sleeping at one of the dozen or so subterranean camps dotted throughout the cave, the cavers clambered through the rocky cavern, climbing over cliffs as high as 80 meters tall.However, the mostly British and French explorers at about 2,500 meters into the cave reached a dead end – a 9-meter-high wall.The mysteries of the cave spurred those at the club.This can require lengthy periods of isolation in pitch black water swimming through a cave never before explored, or it can mean squeezing through a crack in the wall with only hope that there is something on the other side.
