Wilson's PitJuly 02, 2013
Right after Easy Pit we made it over to the location where Wilson's Pit has eroded its way to the surface. This is a 100 ft pit where 30ft is on a ledge and another 80 ft is a free fall down a large borehole pit. Rappelling this pit was a nice because you pass stratified rock layers which was like taking an elevator tour back in time to see where the rock layers laid down their sediments. This was a nice pit!! Best Pit I have been to in Indiana for sure.
The bottom was carved out from a waterfall trickle and there was a slot canyon that one could follow. Everyone in the group scaled to the top of a ledge where you could watch other people come down and ascend up.
