    Silt stakes

    How deep do you make the notch? Halfway through or less? Only downside I can see with a notch is more wear on the line, and more work of course, but you avoid the line slipping off the stake.

    Please explain... are you saying that GSO owns the actual cave under their property? Even the map they sell in the shop show very little of the Devils system is south of the river bank.

    I'm not as familiar with Madison. Is it still possible to exit the main entrance and get to the parking lot wearing doubles without the stairs? What is the route?
