Deepest cave in Thailand

There are early reports that members of the SMCC have recorded the deepest cave in Thailand. Vertical depth is around 305 metres including a 109 metre free hanging pitch. Andy Manners was first down the pitch, 125m total with a 109m free hang. It drops to a big chamber with two routes leading off which meet near a short unexplored drop. The Cave has a lot more depth potential. Also, a 7m pitch approx half way down the cave on the way to the big pitch was left when a 3m drop was encountered. The passage looks as if it continues.
