Deepest Cave Photo 3

Grunt Work
Photograph by Stephen L. Alvarez

Klimchouk helps remove a boulder from a choke in an attempt to clear a path to Krubera from another cave. The persistence, endurance, and determination of the team, Klimchouk says, "confirm Jules Verne's statement in Journey to the Center of the Earth: 'There is nothing more powerful than this attraction toward an abyss.'"
