Descent into 200 m vertical drop in Mamet Cave on the Velebit Mountain, an extraordinary cave location in Croatia. Some of the deepest pits known on earth are located here. Mamet Cave has the biggest entrance in Croatia (60 x 70 m) and it became famous in 2004 when base jumper Felix Baumgartner jumped into the pit. A caver is waiting for his turn while his friends are rappelling down. A dot at the end of the second rope is a caver close to the bottom.

Location: Velebit Mountain, Croatia
