We stopped on the way out of Yosemite at a place called Moaning Cavern. It’s a 400+ foot drop to the bottom, straight down. Thankfully, we got to take the stairs.
The stairs are made of metal from a 91 year old warship from World War 1. There are 243 stairs that take you down almost 200 feet to the first platform. Not for those afraid of heights! All of us were pretty scared.
You can repel down into the cave-that’s what the hanging ropes are for. No thanks.
There is also a 2-3 hour tour where you repel down, and then crawl through tunnel that are just wide enough to fit through. Also no thanks!
