Three more years after the events described here and finally I had again the possibility to dive into this amazing cave; now it's time to realize a detailed cartography to fill in the blank of the whole Ko'ox Baal beautiful map produced by Czech team.
The goal is to realize a grade 4, class D map, according to the British Cave Research Association standards.
Based on the actual size of the cave, I can estimate a duration of the project of about one and a half or two years.
A must: I have to thanks to my sponsors. They decided to support me with this challenging project; they know I have intention to bring the map, once completed, to the National Speleological Society saloon, where I already won two Honorable Mention ribbon for my previous works, Hol Kin and Minotauro maps.
Litterally a "ready to explore" harness; the most durable diving equipment I ever had, combined with the best performances.
Of course, realizing a detailed cartography is a complex work which requires dedication and time. I do this in my spare time, as a hobby, because I like it, but with the double goal to let everybody know the size and the direction of the acquifer, with the hope, one day, that the information included in my work could help the conservation of this unic, amazing and fragile environment.
