Rappelling into their 50th cave, the New Mexico Digital crew begins the Elevation series with Episode 1:  Fifty.  (YouTube Full Elevation Series)

This spring 2012 trip focused on vertical SRT rope-work, and featured Yancy Jubal taking photos with his nifty Canon 60D DSLR.    The NMD team of Mike, DanO, and Justin worked with Phyllis Boneau to make the 3-stage, 100′ descent into cave 50.

The video features hi-res maps and graphics, deep cave exploration, hi-res photography, and original music.
