Видео об экспедиции УСА, сделанное болгарскими участниками экспедиции

Короткометражный фильм об экспедиции Украинской спелеологической Ассоциации в глубочайшую пещеру мира Крубера-Воронья (-2197 м), сделаный болгарскими участниками экспедиции. Впервые в истории видео от дайвера в нижний сифон "Два капитана". Во время этого погружения, дайвер Геннадий Самохин намеревался поймать уникальную рыбу, живущую в сифоне. К сожалению, рыба не была поймана. Вместо нее в сети попал рачок из рода беспозвоночных Zenkevitchia Birstein. Возможно, это новый вид еще не известный науке. Видео в пещере были сделаны камерой Go Pro!

(bg)Кратък филм създаден от българските участници в експедицията на Украинската спелео асоциация в най-дълбоката пропаст на Земята Крубер-Вороня (-2197 м). Тук са единствените за сега кадри от гмуркане в крайният сифон на пещерата. В това гмуркане водолазът Генадий Самохин опитва да улови уникална риба вероятно обитаваща това място. За съжаление риба не бе уловена а безгръбначно от Род Zenkevitchia Birstein вероятно ново за науката! Кадрите под земята са заснети благодарение на Go pro!

Красная-2012: почему пещера перестала «расти»?

4sport.ua открывает специальную тему, посвященную Красной пещере (или, точнее, системе пещер) - Красная-2012: почему пещера перестала «расти»?

В развитие этой темы Геннадий Самохин дал интервью изданию изданию 4sport.ua

С 21 июля по 27 августа 2012 года в рамках экспедиции Украинской спелеологической ассоциации в пещеру Крубера-Воронья, была преодолена самая глубокая в мире отметка -2196 метра

Тем самым в пещере Крубера-Воронья в очередной раз установлен мировой рекорд глубины.

krubera-cave samokhin

The Big Cascade, the largest pit in Krubera Cave, plunges 499 feet (152 meters), but spans less than a tenth of the distance to the cave's unknown bottom. Descending into Krubera, in the country of Georgia, one team member said, "was like climbing an inverted Mount Everest."

When Sergio García-Dils de la Vega kissed his girlfriend, Pilar Orche, goodbye at the entrance to Krubera Cave, he promised to return the next day. But after teammate Bernard Tourte bruised his side in a tight passage, García-Dils decided to stay with him at an underground camp, missing his chance to return to the surface before going deeper. It was two weeks before Orche saw her boyfriend again.

Our expedition, however, had come prepared for a long siege, bringing more than five tons of gear to the cave. Ever since 1956, when explorers in France first descended below 1,000 meters (3,281 feet), generations of cavers had dreamed of achieving the 2,000-meter (6,562-foot) mark. Would Krubera take us there?

Cutting a jagged path through the limestone of the Arabika massif on the edge of the Black Sea, the “trail” to Krubera Cave drops down a chain of pitches, cascades, and pits—some more than 100 meters (328 feet) deep—connected by narrow rift passages called meanders. The cave, located in the separatist region of Abkhazia, was named after Russian geologist Alexander Kruber. In 1960 researchers from the Republic of Georgia explored it to a depth of 90 meters (295 feet). Two decades later, I organized a series of expeditions to investigate new deep caves, using dye traces in cave streams to probe Arabika’s potential depth. In 2001 a team led by Ukrainian Yuri Kasjan set a world record in the cave of 1,710 meters (5,610 feet). Last July a Moscow-based team extended that to 1,775 meters. Our hope was to find a path past 2,000 meters (6,562 feet).

At the start of the expedition, Alexander Karpechenko, whose nickname is “Brick,” exulted in getting his hands on a brand new gasoline-powered hammer that he planned to use to bore holes for explosives to free up tight passages. Team members in nearby Snow Cave cleared blasted rubble from a passage that had been blocked by a “boulder choke.”

Like mountaineers scaling a Himalaya peak, our expedition of 56 cavers from seven countries established a series of campsites at depths of 700, 1,215, 1,410, and 1,640 meters (2,300, 3,990, 4,600, and 5,380 feet). There team members cooked meals, slept five and six to a tent, huddled for warmth, and worked for up to 20 hours at a stretch.

By the third week our downward progress was blocked by a sump at a depth of 1,775 meters

First an intrepid team of explorers broke the depth record in Krubera—the world's deepest cave—near the Black Sea coast. Then a second team went deeper.
