Der Berg ruft: Lhotse + The Cave Connection

Lhotse Its not always what we achieve that defines us, rather it is why we achieve such things that creates clarity in our existence. Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison completed the first ski descent of the 27,940-foot Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world. This is their story.



The Cave Connection

Deep underground in the wilderness of New Zealand, gigantic and widely unexplored cave systems entice adventurers and cavers from around the entire globe. Kieran McKay, one of New Zealands most accomplished cavers, and his team of adventurers have an almost impossible goal: finding a connection between two daunting cave systems. If the team tracks down the link between the Nettlebed and Stormy Pot systems, roughly 80 missing metres, they could claim credit for having found the deepest cave in the southern hemisphere.

This is total isolation: a realm where even cellphones and radio devices dont work. There is no sun, no clouds, no horizon, and therefore no orientation. Everything is cold and wet. Here, 80m can become a mind-boggling odyssey.
