Stefan Glowacz and Chris Sharma climb Majlis al Jinn, the second-largest cavern in the world, 13 pitches of climbing up to 5.14.

What goes up  must come down, well in this case, what goes down must come up. Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz descend beneath the earth’s surface in Oman. The location was Majlis al Jinn, literally the cave of spirits, and the second-largest cavern in the world. The only entrance to the cavern is by a 160m abseil – although that’s not strictly true for everyone.

“When I went in the cave for the first time, I realised it would be so difficult but it would be the perfect project to do with Chris,” said Glowacz.
