Canada's deepest cave uncovered

A Calgary-led group of explorers has uncovered the deepest cave in Canada, north of Fernie.

A Calgary-led group of explorers has uncovered the deepest cave in Canada, north of Fernie. Currently measured at 5.3 kilometres in length and 670 metres deep, they say those numbers will grow as work continues over the next number of years. The Bisaro Anima cave overtakes Heavy Breather, located east of Fernie, which was previously the deepest in Canada at 655 metres.

The team of nine explorers, six of whom are from Calgary, set up camp inside the cave for a week, enduring temperatures of two to four degrees Celsius and complete darkness. Cave passages were characterized by deep canyons, waterfalls, crawlways, uneven floors, loose rock and difficult squeezes.
